|Works inspired by Iranian and Korean love stories to appear at Gongju exhibit||
TEHRAN – Iranian artist Mahmud Maktabi will be displaying a collection of his works, inspired by Iranian and Korean love stories, in an exhibition in Wongol Nature Art House in Gongju, South Korea in June.
Maktabi along with a number of international artists and critics were invited to the Global Nomadic Art Project initiated by the Korean Nature Art Association, YATOO in April.
The works created by Maktabi during his month-long stay will go on show in the exhibit, which will open on June 1 and will run until June 20.
“The major theme of the exhibit is love, and one Korean and one Iranian love stories are the source of inspiration for my exhibit,” Maktabi told the Persian service of ISNA on Saturday.
Entitled “A Story about Love”, most of the works on display will be paintings, photo, installation and performance art, he added.
Love in all the cultures mean friendship, peace and beauty and one can find beautiful stories about love in any country, he stated.
Maktabi has plans to continue his solo exhibits in other countries, each time with a love story from Iran beside one story from the host country.
