Shahrokh Roland-Khosravi is a Vancouver-based artist who works in painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. An important element he explores in his work, is the challenge of the unknown within himself and his art work. He develops his paintings by pushing against the tensions that exist in the visual relationships of colour, shapes, and texture. Roland looks in greater depth at his experiences, memories of places, emotions, and sensations as a source for his work. Roland's work evokes peoples' feelings with it's strong subject matter- and the paintings excite and inspire viewers with their richness of colour and composition.
