Product Details

This 43 x 52-inch original oil painting on stretched canvas is a stunning statement piece. It is both visually and texturally inviting - drawing the viewer into the piece like a great musical composition. The first in a series that honors Johann Sebastian Bach, Cantata 1 connotes the undulating space between lightness and dark that Bach evokes in his baroque style. You will want to build your room around this piece.

Ostovany categorizes his work as Atmospheric Abstraction, navigating the terrain between Abstract Expressionism and Eastern Mystical traditions. The works featured in this show are original oil paintings influenced by Ostovany’s lifelong fascination with Sufi fables and Persian myths.

Born in Iran, Yari Ostovany moved to the United States at the age of 16 and pursued his studies in Art first at the University of Nevada - Reno and then at the San Francisco Art institute where he received his MFA in 1995. His work is in the permanent collections of many institutions including the New Britain Museum of American Art (New Britain, Connecticut), Pasargad Bank Museum (Tehran, Iran), Chateau d'Orquevaux (Champagne-Ardenne, France), Permanent Collection of the University of Nevada - Reno Art Department. Ostovany now lives and creates in the East Bay.
