TEHRAN -- The 2nd Tehran Graffiti Biennial opened at the Iranian Artists Forum (IAF) on Monday.
 
A group of famous artists and graphic designers attended the opening ceremony of the biennial, which is being held in the four categories of competition, exhibition, workshop and seminar.
 
Over 90 works have been selected for the competition section with the central theme of graffiti for Tehran, and 64 artworks will be exhibited in the review section in which murals of Tehran from the past decade will be displayed.
 
Pictures of some murals painted on walls across Tehran over the past 10 years will go on show at the exhibit, and they will be compared with the entries to the competition section of the festival, graphic designer Mostafa Asadollahi said at the opening ceremony on Monday.
 
Graffiti in Tehran must achieve an identity, like the graffiti in the cities of Yazd and Isfahan, he added.
 
Experts and researchers will also be attending a number of sessions arranged on the side section during the festival, which will be running until May 21.
 
Organizers have also dedicated a section to 3D paintings.
 
The forum is located on Musavi St., off Taleqani Ave.
