Masoud Ghafouri – A master of fine painting:
The artist was born in Zahedan (South-East Iran) in 1954. Already as a child, he discovered his passion for the art of painting, but he had to remain firm against his father’s will and pave his way through as autodidact. As a result of his determination to follow his passion and his artistic talent, Masoud Ghafouri was awarded several prizes for his art in Iran. Due to cultural and political conflicts, the master was forced to emigrate with his family to Germany at the beginning of the eighties. Despite the difficulties of starting a new life in a new country, he kept on going his way and constantly developing his art. His pictures were admired in numerous exhibitions also in Germany. Masoud Ghafouri dedicated most of his life to perfecting his art. His pictures reflect the insatiable yearning for the origin of life and the search for beauty. Through these fine depictions of love and the joy of life, the master tempts us into the realm of the soul.
