S. A. Noory
S.A Noory’s emergence on the art canvas in 1998 gave recognition to the magic that he paints in his miniature pieces. The details that he focuses on in his paintings speak for the love that he has for his work. His play with the colors, shadows, lines and presentation of expression tell a story of their own. It is hard to express in words the details that he focuses on in his pieces; be it the embroidery on clothes of the figures or mosaic presentation on the structures that he paints. His works require for an art lover to stand, observe and absorb the fine work that he presents. Only a personal experience with his miniature pieces can explain the feelings that these invigorate
S. A. Noory is unique in many ways. Although Noory was trained in Fine Arts, he worked diligently to master the art of miniature painting. Over the years he has developed his own oeuvre, which encompasses a wide range of subjects rendered in the miniature tradition. He has successfully captured the delicacy of line, aesthetics of color combinations with transparency and play of light and shadow, wash effects, silky smoothness of curves, portraying facial expressions and aura of a situation.
His objective is to express various emotional reactions such as joy, pain, sorrow, etc in a vocabulary of mammoth brush strokes loaded with lively pigments. His palette is consistent and versatile across the canvases, signifying the artist’s ability to create compositions that exude visual rhythms. See all the SA Noory paintings collection below.
