BERAHNA MASSOUM

THE BARE LANGUAGE OF ART

BERAHNA MASSOUM

is an internationally known artist. His work contains various art categories such as free sculptures, realistic drawings, speedy portraits, calligraphy and also modern art.

Berahna created a vast number of sculptures of well- known personalities modeled with clay and mostly cast in bronze. He describes his art as “psychorealistic” inspired by the intention to portray self-representation and allow a view to the inner world.

ABOUT BERAHNA

Massoum decided at a young age to be called “Berahna”, which is his artist’s name and has the meaning of “being unveiled” or very „direct“. A risky name, that caused a lot of attention especially in Afghanistan’s more conservative society, where he was born. It’s not only about physical exposure, but moreover about an inner revelation, a sheer and genuine mentality, that is reflected and expressed in his artwork.

His work as a sculptor often starts with a conversation, in which he really wants to get to know the person. “The willingness to have a portrait made by me or an artist in general, shows a lot of self- consciousness”, says Berahna.

His portraits are almost alive, they are not mere illustrations, no masks. Instead, Berahna unveils those facades and penetrates to the very essence of being. A truth, lightly touched in the core and expressed in every fine, clay modeled nuance of the portrait. The artist communicates about his created works of art in a "naked language" that manifests itself as a revelation of the soul.
