Khamoosh - Xamoosh
The true identity of this artist, like the identity of mostly all his Iranian colleagues, is not known for security's reasons. Khamoosh was born in Teheran in 1989 and started making graffiti in 2007. He approaches the street art world going to Apadana district, in the city's west side. This place represents the roots of the Iran's graffiti history during the 1979's revolution. Here the young artist had the opportunity to discover A10NE's works and then he understood what he was looking for: he felt “the urgency to write on the walls”. Khamoosh's style went through an evolution with the passing of time, at the beginning and for many years he focused on the use of persian calligraphic elements. After experimenting different artistic expressions at about three years ago he defined his unmistakable style, he started using constantly the “knife” image. The famous Khamoosh's “knives” are a perfect combination between shapes and letters, the message he aims to share throught the knife's images is hidden in their blade, graffiti represent a weapon for the artist:<>. Khamoosh realizes his works drawing free hand using mostly varnish spray and paintbrushes. Beyond affirming himself among the leaders of Iran's street art and cooperating with many Iranian street artists, for example Nirone, Khamoosh passed his national borders coming in some eurpean countries.
