Sassan Behnam-Bakhtiar focuses on the importance of being connected with the eternal self,
particularly in our modern world where, he believes, people lose themselves more and more
every day. The artist trusts that by being one with the eternal self, any individual can start to
experience an evolved state of existence and become truly whole. One of the artist's messages
behind this body is that when people who are connected with their eternal self come together
in harmony with a unified goal, they bring a positive change to the world. Oneness Wholeness
is a result of the artist's seven year search on the path of this evolved state and by pairing
practice with much research and guidance by masters of meditative and energy balancing
practices, he was able to reach a higher state of being. The artist practices this ideology on
a daily basis and found the importance of bringing this into his artistic practice in order to
inform his audience about the importance of being truly connected with oneself and to be
working with others to bring forth a constructive energy and change.
