Babak Emanuel

  • Babak Emanuel

  • Babak Emanuel is an artist strongly influenced by music -- his works are melodies played in textured forms, brilliant in colour, exciting and fresh in design, a metamorphosis of the extension of music into art, of the human form transposed to music, music to art, art to human expression, human expression to the rhythm of life. The quieting play of sound, the expression of scale relating to the yin and yang of colour and motion, in his life a swell as his art. His sound of art is a freshness of style and approach - a blend of the modern with the antique reflecting an age of quality - quality of meaning, quality of image.

    These qualities were ingrained in Babak in his native Shiraz, Iran, the famed valley of poets and philosophers, where he was born in 1966. The teachings of these poets and philosophers were furthered at the Atlanta Institute of Art where he graduated in June of 1987 after extensive studies in painting and photography.

    This marriage of the discipline of photography with the controlled freedom of painting is evident in his use of perspective. Also an accomplished serigrapher, he applies these skills in his present painting style - a style which reflects his thoughts, soul and dreams is recognizable to the viewers as uniquely Babak.

    Babak’s work appears in galleries and private collections throughout the world.
