artFido’s featured artist for this month is Bijan Soltani. Born in Kerman/Iran in 1986, Bijan now lives in Perth, Australia, working full time as an architecture visualiser and Revit modeler, and part time as a character/environment designer & animator. In his spare time he manages to put together some amazingly complex and striking pieces of art that we are happy to feature prominently on the artFido homepage.

Beginning his career as a traditional cartoonist in 2000, Bijan soon found his passion in the digital world. Taking influences from politics, poetry, and architecture, his work can be both both engaging and disturbing. In his piece “Stalin and Putin Mask” we see Stalin settling into bed, holding a Putin mask tenderly. Looking closer at this surreal scene we see the feet of Stalin’s victims hanging from the ceiling. A strong statement against the Russian despot that contrasts strongly with another of Bijan’s pieces, “Love, Wind and the Woman”. This piece, while also beautifully crafted, is awash with warmth and color and gives a feeling of joy and serenity, absent political overtones or deeper, unsettling themes.
