Art Auction in Iran

modern art in iran

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..
