MadjidMadjid moves us through his unconscious expressionism. Everything that he forms is full of his inner vitality. People and landscapes achieve their own dimension.

Madjid moves us through his unconscious expressionism. Everything that he forms is full of his inner vitality. People and landscapes achieve their own dimension. Rather than focusing on the detail and the structure,
Madjid suggests only the aspects that relate to mood, essence and atmosphere. He captures the world in powerful blurs of colour and light, as though experiencing it in brief glimpses through only half-opened eyes.
Madjid’s paintings are a ‘self-portrait’ of himself, they emphasise his passionate energy and casual demeanour, his simple zest for life and almost flippant regard for particulars. As a man with a keen ear for jazz, his art follows the same philosophies – loose, colourful and infinitely expressive.
His works can be found in many private collections in Europe, America and Asia.
