Australia’s first showcase of narrative artworks by leading contemporary Iranian illustrators will open on November 11.

The gallery of Ludlow Creative Space and Good Eddy Café, both established by Maddy and Toby Howell in the city of Orange in New South Wales, Australia, are holding the exhibition of Iranian illustrations in collaboration with Dirt Lane Press, a not-for-profit publisher based in the same city, the website of Iranian illustrators reported.   

To showcase the sophistication and power of narrative illustrations, Dirt Lane Press stages exhibitions of international scope, four of which are proposed to be shown at Ludlow Creative Space in 2016-2017.

“With a focus on birds, from the humble sparrow to the flamboyant mythological Simorgh, this vibrant selection of images demonstrates both the richness of contemporary narrative illustration and the depth of Persian culture,” reads the poster of the exhibit titled ‘Birds of a Feather’.

The participating artists are Afra Nobahar, Ali Boozari, Ali Namvar, Alireza Goldoozian, Amir Shabanipour, Atieh Markazi, Fatemeh Khosravian, Fereshteh Najafi, Hamideh Khosravian, Hoda Hadadi, Kamal Tabatabai, Mahkameh Shabani, Maneli Manouchehri, Mansoureh Hosseini, Marjan Vafaian, Nahid Kazemi, Narges Mohammadi, Rashin Kheirieh, Ronak Taher and Zahra Khatibi.

The event is supported by Orange Regional Arts Foundation, Kia Literary Agency in Tehran and Frame Effect, a leader in picture framing industry across Australia. The exhibit will run through December 3.
