 It’s been three months since the Syrian refugee Doaa Al Zamel was rescued by a Greek vessel after the boat that she was travelling in was deliberately rammed in the Mediterranean Sea.

Salman Khoshroo’s portraits seem so honest and yet impartial, that they make you quiver. Perhaps that happens because what he does in his paintings is laying human soul open. Psychology is his primary interest in art. Khoshroo’s studio is similar to a psychologist’s consulting room, and his paintings come as personal diagnosis for different people. Each face looking at you from his paintings is a face of an ordinary Iranian. Each face makes you wonder about what one man is able to understand about the other, and about how this comprehension is possible without words. These are the Khoshroo’s paintings that we choose to dedicate our photo project to. The interview with the Youth Time reveals what is motivating Salman Khoshroo and what is moving him forward.

Basically, we asked Kuba (short for Jakub) about whether anything changes in his looks when IronKap appears as a teacher or if the teaching career influences his popularity in music.
