Portland, Oregon, USA
Before moving to Portland in 2006, I was born, raised, and educated in California. Besides being a painter, I am also a landscape designer. My full name took me a long time to learn and is very long: Sayed-Mohamad-Azad Mehdi Madjd-Sadjadi.
In order to tell the “story” of the painting I rely on color theory and my education in landscape architecture. When laying out a painting I will go back to what I have learned in designing landscapes. One of the main methods I apply is using primary, secondary, and tertiary objects or themes. Their layout and interaction helps create hierarchy and proper balance within the paintings.
