Psychology is his primary interest in art. Khoshroo’s studio is similar to a psychologist’s consulting room, and his paintings come as personal diagnosis for different people.

Each face makes you wonder about what one man is able to understand about the other, and about how this comprehension is possible without words. These are the Khoshroo’s paintings that we choose to dedicate our photo project to. The interview with the Youth Time reveals what is motivating Salman Khoshroo and what is moving him forward.
