Social Subjects in Artwork

A solo painting exhibition by Iranian artist Kamyar Kafaie will open on April 15 at Tehran’s Aaran Art Gallery.
His elaborate mixed media paintings cover diverse subjects, featuring a critical point of view of the middleclass mentality in Iran.
Kafaie has reflected humor in society, of the past and present times, at times implicitly referring to his own life story, besides giving commentaries on social hypocrisies, the Persian art magazine ‘Tandis’ reported.
“I developed the characters in a separate sketch book first and then transferred them to canvas,” said the artist. Different characters are portrayed in each of the paintings.
The paintings also include environmental issues, with each telling its own story. The narrative flow of the scenes can be cited as a sample of manuscript paintings in the Persian art of bookmaking.
Kafaie, 37, is a BA graduate of the California State University of Northridge in accounting. He has also studied animation at the same university. Like many Iranian artists and poets, Kafaie has chosen the language of satire to convey social issues.
The venue of the show is at No. 12, Dey St., North Kheradmand Avenue.
