Bahman Mohasses is one of the artists who em- phasize his unique personal art, style and look in creating his works, both in the field of painting and sculpture. He transcends the superficial and dramatic manifestations of modern schools and at the same time the outward manifestations of the Iranian visual tradition, and finds remarkable success in inventing his personal identity. Critics, friends and followers consider his work to be influenced by the most famous Spanish artist of the twentieth century, Pablo Picasso. Beyond technique and style, the influence of Picasso’s personality on him and the spiritual similarities between the two are sometimes astonishing. What sets Mohasses apart from many Iranian artists, in addition to his unique technique among Iranian painters, was his dark and bitter look in his works. Although many of Mohasses’ ear- ly works are technically close to those of European painters of the 1920s and 1930s, their main origins are in Picasso’s Cubist style. Perhaps for this rea- son, many Iranian painters and art critics consider Bahman Mohasses to be the most complete Iranian painter by European standards and even know him as the Iranian Picasso.
