About John Houshmand John Houshmand was born an artist in 1954.
Raised by a Dutch-American mother and an Iranian father, John has always danced between Eastern philosophy and Western principles. Cultured at an early age, he spent his youth abroad in the Philippines, Great Britain, Iran, and Israel.
Educated at Yale University, John received a BA in Art History in 1978. Working with his hands has always been second nature. John's work embodies the simplicity of Eastern aesthetics, a vibrant celebration of nature, and a deep reverence for all things esoteric. Each JOHNHOUSHMAND piece is handcrafted from salvaged trees whose aura and history is captured, preserved and transformed. The rich colors and textures of live-edge wood are contrasted with clean lines of metals and glass, creating a union of realms. Geometric intervention through cutting and folding reveals the secret life of wood. His pieces come to life on John’s 900-acre farm in the Catskills.
