Shahab Tolooie

He was born in 1956 in Teheran. He moved in Franch in 1979 with a fierce will to keep his freedom to think, Tolooie has used a 1001 chalks, brushes, paints and other tools necessary to the process of creation. His inspiration is drawn from the fire of ancient and modern painters that came from the four corners of the Earth. Equally inspired by the ‘Joy of Living’ and the spiritual qualities of Khayam and Epicurus, he uses exquisite colours that radiate energy, musical notes and freedom of movement.

When Louis Toffoli, a famous French artist, bought Tolooie’s work, it signalled a turning point. From then on, Tolooie becomes well established in South East France and shows in Germany, Switzerland and California. He currently teaches fine art near Lyon, France. Tolooie believes that the Art of Painting holds no barriers and that his work reconnects somewhere with the whole world in its universality and in search for supreme pleasure.
