TEHRAN – The Iranian Artists Forum (IAF) plans to organize an international poster exhibition on the liberation struggle icon Nelson Mandela.
 
In a press release published on Wednesday, the IAF called upon artists from around the world to participate in this exhibition entitled “Nelson Mandela: The Bird of Freedom”.
 
Mandela, South Africa’s first black president, passed away peacefully in the company of his family on Thursday after a long battle with a lung infection.
 
Since his death, South Africa has been gripped by an outpouring of emotion unrivalled since Mandela’s release in 1990 after 27 years in apartheid prisons, and his victory in the first all-race elections four years later.
