Kiasat’s Caricatures

A collection of caricatures by veteran classical cartoonist and painter, Kioumars Kiasat will be on display at Zamestan Gallery from December 18.
The series includes 55 items created four decades ago, and are being displayed for the first time in 26 years, Honaronline reported.
Pointing to his expressionistic works, Kiasat said: “It is important to stimulate the viewers through visual elements, giving them the opportunity to spend some moments thinking about artworks.”
His creations are a combination of forms and literature, he said. “The common must-have features of caricature are rarely present in my works, for I’ve used various techniques, including painting methods.”
Caricature should be timeless and capable of conveying the meaning at any time, even after a long, long time, the artist noted.
The works of Kiasat, 67, are mostly based on Iranian miniatures and traditional motifs. His caricatures are mostly in black and white, due to his personal interest in the two colors.
He first exhibited his collection in a group event in Tabriz, his hometown in northwest Iran , in 1973.
The exhibition will run through December 28, at the gallery at Iranian Artists Forum, Art Garden, North Mousavi St., Taleqani Ave., Tehran.
