|Tehran gallery displaying “Art Breathing in the Air of Football”||
The collection contains twenty-one paintings by Forugh Khoshnevis.
“I have always been interested in social issues, and these days the world is under the influence of the (2014) World Cup (in Brazil) so I decided to focus on football,” Khoshnevis told the Persian service of ISNA on Sunday.
“I became interested in football when I was watching a European football match. There is a beauty in the game of football, and a person can notice this beauty if she/he becomes better acquainted with football,” she added.
Khoshnevis also added that she has tried to make more use of color in her works to reflect the excitement of football, and to use elements in her paintings that are both real and symbolic.
The exhibit opened on May 29 and will be running until June 3 in the gallery located at 21 Fatemei St., off Vali-e Asr Ave.
