TEHRAN – An exhibition of paintings by Iranian artist Ahmad Nasrollahi opened yesterday at the Chekhov Cultural Center in Moscow.
Entitled “Myth, Dream and Symbol”, a collection of twenty-five paintings has been put on display in the week-long exhibit, the Persian service of IRNA reported on Tuesday.
Iran’s Cultural Attaché in Moscow Hossein Tabatabaii along with a number of Iranian and Russian artists and students attended the opening ceremony.
Speaking at the ceremony, Tabatabaii said that Russian society is familiar with Iranian traditional art, especially miniature, but not many know about the contemporary art of Iran.
“This exhibit has provided a chance for the Russians to become more familiar with contemporary Persian art and culture,” he added.
Nasrollahi next expressed his thanks to the organizers of the exhibit and said, “As an artist I am familiar with Iranian symbols, one of which is creation.
“In this exhibit, images of mountains, fire, night, and Noruz celebrations are depicted as symbols of creation,” he added.
Born in 1951 in Babol, Mazandaran Province, Nasrollahi has held several solo and group exhibits in Iran and several other countries.
