ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Born March 26, 1979 in Santa Barbara California, and raised in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California, the imagery surrounding Taman as a child consisted primarily of cityscapes with the occasional glimpse of a sun-drenched desert climate. Being instinctively drawn to nature yet lacking the visual stimulation of wide-open colorful landscapes, he unconsciously began to idealize landscape compositions and color combinations in his mind. In essence he would create an imaginary and almost dreamlike scene which to this day continues to be the first step when creating his paintings. By utilizing the subtle qualities of the medium, Taman creates minimal landscape scenes that capture the mysterious qualities of nature.
Taman started his professional art career at the end of 2002 when he entered his first art show. Now in his 19th year on the art show circuit and works in several galleries, Taman has won multiple awards and continues to sell his work directly to the public and with representation.
