Masoud Sadedin

Recipient of the Rheinischer Kunstpreis Art Award of Rhine-Sieg-Kreis County 2016

The eighth Rheinischer Kunstpreis Art Award of Rhine-Sieg-Kreis County goes to Masoud Sadedin. Masoud Sadedin was born in Semnan, Iran in 1956 and has been living and working in Rhine-Sieg-Kreis County for the past 30 years. In addition to the drawings he has been creating his entire life, it is his works in oil that convinced the jury. These await new discovery now in this Bonn exhibition, since to date Sadedin has been rather restrained with respect to presentations of his work. Sadedin's theme is the human being and the traces he leaves behind. "The motif from everyday life is transformed into a moment in painting," he states concerning his works. These comprise themes that have influenced him from his own life history. Masoud Sadedin does not like art that indoctrinates others or – in the case of political art – subjects itself to the spirit of the times. For him, art is a means for understanding and thus, it is timeless.

The Rheinischer Kunstpreis Art Award is an initiative of Rhine-Sieg-Kreis County in cooperation with the Landschaftsverband Rheinland. It is awarded every two years. The recognition acknowledges an artistic position in contemporary art. This is already the 8th time that Rhine-Sieg-Kreis County advertised an invitation to participate in the competition. 361 male and female artists have applied for this Award with prize money amounting to 20,000 Euros.
