A solo painting exhibition by Iranian artist Khosrow Khosravi is on view at Tehran’s Aun Gallery.

Titled ‘The Wet Streets’, the series includes 11 paintings, which took the artist about two years to complete, Honaronline reported.

Like in his earlier works, the current collection focuses on the themes of city and society and portrays wet streets after rainfall. “Playing with colors, textures and forms, I have tried to present a semi-realistic view of city streets creating a feel of the real ground and pavements.”

“The embedded little angles are an incongruous element in the paintings, because I believe the heterogeneity would create a dramatic view of the streets,” the artist said.

Khosravi, 52, holds a master degree in art research from Tehran University of Art and is currently a member of the Art Faculty. He is also a member of the Iranian Painters Society and has held more than 50 group exhibitions in Iran, France, Italy, India, Armenia, Qatar and Canada.

The show will run through June 15 at the gallery located at No. 40, Seoul Ave., Vanak neighborhood.
