Original oil paintings on canvas by Moussin Irjan
"I use art as a means of knowledge. I'm inspired mainly by music, especially modern Italian songs. I am inspired by people. It is important to me that my paintings are made using high quality materials and to the highest standards - by this I mean the combination of high levels of performance, creative reflection, planning and impromptu execution. Along with my ongoing painting practice, I continue to study painting.
I use oil-based paint that is often quite fluid - my painting is like a watercolour technique - using oils. Sometimes I work with thicker paint, that emphasises the expression of a stroke. For me, the picture should 'live'.
