|Watercolor painting in Iran has regressed: artist||
Various factors have helped the medium of watercolor become obsolete in Iran, Aslani said during the opening ceremony of an exhibition of his watercolors at Tehran’s Shokuh Gallery on Sunday.
That is why Iranian gallery owners prefer to hold other types of exhibits, while watercolor has made progress in the countries like Russia, India and Turkey at the same time, he added.
Aslani said that his latest works, which are on display at the exhibit, are far from the works created in the classic method by other Iranian artists.
“The collection has been created in modern styles to make a better impression on visitors,” he stated.
He expressed hope that the watercolor artists who enjoy special styles in their works would unite.
Aslani has been working on watercolor for over 20 years and has held several exhibits in Iran and several other countries.
The exhibit will be running until April 24 at the gallery, which can be found at 19 Amir Nuri Alley, North Salimi St. near Andarzgu Blvd.
