The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Ashti Garmiyani

Rostam Zada is an artist from Eastern Kur­dis­tan-Iran. He is an ex­pe­ri­enced and an in­no­va­tive painter. Muhamad Salih Rostam Zada is his full name, but he is known as Namo. He is teach­ing art at the Col­lege of Fine Arts in Hawler. Namo was born in 1964 in the city of Bokan. He got his BA in the depart­ment of paint­ing, Col­lege of Fine Arts in Tahran in 1993. He got his MA de­gree in paint­ing with ex­cel­lent de­gree. He’s gained artis­tic membership in South­ern Kur­dis­tan, and he’s the hon­orary mem­ber in the Coun­cil of Artists and Sculp­tors in Tahran.

Kur­dish artists in Eastern Kur­dis­tan, like other artists in the world, want and have been able to shift the level of art and hand­works to a high level. Con­se­quently, they have gained pop­u­lar­ity in their coun­try. For this pur­pose, they have worked very hard. The art of Rostam Zada, in ad­di­tion of be­ing pro­fes­sional, ap­pears to be con­tem­po­rary. He has used many tech­niques and meth­ods to ex­press his ideas and themes in his works.

He’s em­ployed the Kur­dish mo­tifs and cul­ture in his paint­ings. He him­self is deeply com­mit­ted to what is Kur­dish. That’s why he has been in­flu­enced and in­spired by his sur­round­ings. His choice of color is a good ex­am­ple of this fact. In­no­va­tion and re­newal have spe­cial im­por­tance for Rostam Zada, es­pe­cially in the used tech­nique and the ex­e­cu­tion of his paint­ings.

In ev­ery ex­hi­bi­tion, he in­tro­duces a group of new forms and styles. Rostam Zada has had ex­hi­bi­tions in the cities of Sina, Bokan, Saqz and other places. The ex­hi­bi­tions cre­ate di­a­logues be­tween his works and the Kur­dish au­di­ence. He too has shown his works in Suleimani and Hawler. Now he teaches art at the Col­lege of Fine Arts in Hawler. He is an ex­pe­ri­enced leader that can in­spire his stu­dents and in­tro­duce them to the magic world of cre­ativ­ity.
