The thing that I like most about maintaining Art News Blog is the different art that I see each day. It gets me out of my comfort zone and I look at art that I wouldn’t have otherwise looked at. I couldn’t tell you the name of one famous Iranian artist but that doesn’t stop me from having a browse through an Iranian art auction being held in Tehran on the 28th of this month. Actually I can think of one famous Iranian artist: the photographer Shirin Neshat.. or is she American? I’m pretty sure she was at least born in Iran.
Here’s a few artworks of interest from the upcoming Modern and Contemporary Iranian art auction..
Farshid Mesghali – Mona Lisa – Mixed media sculpture
The Iranian art auction will be held in Tehran on the 28th of May at the Parsian Azadi Hotel. You can browse through the works for sale at the Tehran Auction website here (there’s an English version of the site)
