October 23 - November 13, 2021
AMENOR Contemporary is delighted to invite you to our new exhibition which is the first solo in the show of the Persian artist ‘Seyed A. Shariatpanahi’. Entitled ‘Within & Without’ it will feature 12 oil paintings from 23 Oct until 13 Nov, 2021.
Seyed A. Shariatpanahi (b. 1938, Iran), is one of the first-generation Iranian modernist artists and he has had a crucial role in art development in the country. He graduated from the College of Fine Arts at University of Tehran in 1969 as the first art college in the Middle East with French teaching methods and Iranian and foreign professors.
The majority of Shariatpanahi’s works are according to this principle both in form and theme. He is a master of the eastern and western history of art and the traces of Cubist and Futurist artists along with Iranian narrative art are evident in his paintings. Nonetheless, it is crucial to see how he has stepped in a different path than western artists, seeking to create beautiful and insightful Iranian themes.
Seyed Asadollah Shariatpahi’s work has been the subject of several solo and group exhibitions worldwide.
