Kamran Samimi

Kamran Samimi presents different ways to observe the world around us.  While his materials and techniques vary, Kamran creates works of art which are both a tribute and response to the rich landscapes found throughout Hawai’i. Through the use of dissection, repetition, and abstraction, he seeks to uncover the essence within all things, ultimately encouraging mindful contemplation.
