Hooshang is an internationally exhibited artist with working studios in Ruston, LA, and Orange County, CA. His art career began early – when a newspaper published one of his drawings at age 7. Enrollment in an arts-centered high school followed, then college and a BFA in painting. His early professional years included 12 years as a graphic designer and an award-winning illustrator of children's books. Since 1984, he has worked as a self-employed artist in America and on the Mediterranean coast in Spain. His paintings are displayed in private collections in Europe and across the United States as well as in several corporate collections. They are also part of the permanent collection of Lake Eustis (FL) Museum of Art. Hooshang's work reflects a bold contemporary style, with hues alternating between muted and highly energized. His paintings are in acrylic and mixed media, and range from brushwork to washes to work with a palette knife. He paints on canvas, paper and board.
