Let’s meet Iranian artist Salman Khoshroo, a wizard with polymer. Picture thick globs of industrial magic mixed into a colorful gummy dance. Think primary colors spiced with black and white. It’s like art in a candy store. Khoshroo crafts mesmerizing busts, a balance of messy strokes and precise dollops. It’s like he’s sculpting feelings with paint.

Enter the Polymer Series, born from Khoshroo’s quest for artistic alchemy with different materials. He spills the secret sauce: “I search for materials with interesting behaviors that embody a certain kind of empathetic physical feel. This material is very gestural on its own: The pieces dance and wrestle with this sticky substance to shape it into its final human forms.”
