Expressive sculptural portraits made of raw wool by Salman Khoshroo

Salman Khoshroo (previously) is an Iranian multifaceted visual artist based in Tehran. His series of sculptural portraits made of colored raw wool was a way he found to express his experience of quarantine and recent trauma. They turned into a kind of therapy.

The Wool on Foam portraits are tied to my experience of quarantine and recent trauma. Weaving inanimate fibers into faces brings me comfort and helps deal with the issues. These portraits are delicate and vulnerable and resonate with my own precarious situation. We live in fragile times, and I feel the need to find new materials and the mindset to reinvent my practice. Wool brings warmth and intimacy to these portraits, and plays with provoking the nurture instinct. Making male portraits with this habitually perceived feminine material, is part of a personal journey in re-interpreting the masculine condition. My aim is to make full volume sculptures in wool and develop some of the ideas out of this initial project.
