Ghadyanloo started off by decorating Tehran’s high rise buildings and offices eight years ago. He is inspired by minimalism and empty architectural spaces on which he create’s surreal murals that appear to be from another universe. His paintings aim to create gravity defying and perspective altering illusions that blend in with the sky and surrounding buildings.
