the science of being awesome

I came across artist Arian Behzadi’s fabulous work the other day and was knocked on my butt by it’s sheer awesomeness. *swoon!* Totally and completely in love with everything about his work – minimal, collage driven, mod/retro images {Audrey Hepburn, anyone??}, abstract use of paint – 100% my cup of tea. Just. Too. Good.

Since I was seriously design crushing, I took a brief break from drooling all over my keyboard to read the artist’s profile, and what do I discover? Arian Behzadi is a Biological Sciences major!! Say what?? I couldn’t have been more surprised if he had said he was a part time trapeze artist. The science major/design genius goes on to say, “In between classes, however, I do personal and commissioned visual design work. I have always found parallels between art and the sciences so a lot of my studies find their way into my artwork. Aside from design work, I am a research assistant at the Carraway/Sweeney Cancer Lab and an intern at the Same Day Surgery Center at the UCD Medical Center.”

If you could see me, there’s a thought bubble with a cartoon question mark hanging over my head. Still.
