Saroush Ghouri - Artist from United Arab Emirates

Times of Youth: For those who don’t know about you and your work, can you tell us a little about yourself?

Saroush Ghouri: My name is Saroush Ghouri; born in Abu Dhabi (UAE) and raised in Karachi (Pakistan). I am thankfully born with God Gifted talent of being Creative and a good Colourist. I completed my 2 years Fine Arts Certificate in Painting and  4 years Diploma in Fine Arts as Major subject Stone Carving, from Arts Council of Karachi (ACIAC) in October 2012.

I am Saroush. A collection of air, water and fire; A character preserved in wordless stories shouting silently in the depths, Feelings and Emotions are words for me.
My work is my mirror, ultimately.. I discover that the meaning of life is not simple but rather beautifully intricate and perplexing.. It has parts amazingly interconnected, making it difficult to analyze, having many inter-related parts or facets. 

I connect to God through my Art, as I strongly believe that God is the Supreme Artist who uses Our Life for the Creation of Art.

I found I could those say things with color and shapes, forms, dynamic, whimsical sculptures that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for. 

I portray my feelings through sculptures. Within every block of stone, there dwells a spirit, waiting to be released. Direct carving is a way of freeing the spirit - my own and that of the stone. Stone carving is easy - it's the stone that is hard part.

Times of Youth: How would you describe your work to someone who has never known about it?

Saroush Ghouri: My work is always symbolic and meaningful on so many Levels. A truly and spiritual piece of Art. There is always a story or an action or a conversation in an idea, a message behind every artwork, describing rather than expressing the thoughts or moods and works of heart and those feelings which cannot be put forth. One needs to see it and think of this themselves.

Times of Youth: What sparked your initial interest in arts?

Saroush Ghouri: Nothing in particular. I Believe that I have a Power to transform everything to good. I am Good Colourist since I was Kid. I used to make cards, recycle things, etc. Then ultimately GOD became my Inspiration .. I Love Nature; it is Mysteriously Magnificent  Art of God.

Times of Youth: At what age did you start doing all this work? Has your family always been supportive of this choice of career?

Saroush Ghouri: I was born an Artist. I started doing all this work since when i was kid .. My family  really love to see me with this abundant talent but still, they had the traditional mindset that art should not be chosen as a career-option.

Times of Youth: Which of your projects are you most proud of and why?

Saroush Ghouri: My First Thesis exhibition titled ‘Cycle of Life’, based on God's Nature Cycle in Everything, which I had when I was in third year of university. This happened at Arts Council in Karachi in 2011. Since I made work for this exhibition about 5 Sand stone Carved sculptures and 3 paintings. That gave boost to my inner Artist.

My Second Thesis exhibition titled "Intricacies of Life" was based on my own feelings beyond words. It made me realize that I can work under pressure and it gave me confidence in my skills.

When people like my work and Understand the message regarding that work on my Facebook page, it makes me very proud & boosts my confidence further..

Times of Youth: Where do you see yourself in next 5 years?

Saroush Ghouri: God knows best where I would stand after five years. As far as I see I would love to be a successful good conceptual artist, hoping that lot of people love my work, exhibiting in Pakistan and many countries, and to travel and be part of artist residencies in many exciting countries.

Times of Youth: What is one question nobody has ever asked you— that you wish they asked you?
