Rassouli is known in the art world for his stunning and insightful canvases. He was born in Iran to a family of mystics and was influenced by the mystics of the East. He studied and practiced painting and architecture in the West and is currently living in Southern California. Rassouli draws from the well of the subconscious and journeys into the hidden images of the soul to create. He describes himself as an ogler and a libertine, as one who sees beneath the surface and is free to express what he sees, feels, and imagines.
