Germchi Exhibit Honors Ferdowsi

Iranian painter, graphic designer and print artist Babak Germchi is celebrating the national Ferdowsi Day (May 15) by showcasing 63 of his artworks.
His exhibition at the Diplomatic Gallery of the ECO Cultural Institute in Tehran features 56 manual and silk-screen prints as well as seven enamels and copper works.
Germchi, 58, is displaying the works to celebrate the day commemorating Persian poet Abolqasem Ferdowsi (940-1020) who wrote the ‘Shahnameh’ (Book of Kings), the world’s longest epic poem created by a single poet.
The exhibit titled ‘Re-Narrating Shahnameh, a Depiction by Babak Germchi’ opens on May 15, and will run for 10 days between 10 am and 6 pm, reported ISCA (Iran Student Correspondents Association).
To create the featured works, Germchi has referred to all lithographs and illustrated editions of the Shahnameh that he could access. His main focus, though, was on the lithograph illustrated by Iranian artist Mirza Ali Akbar 160 years ago which he views “as a successful depiction of characters and settings” in the work.
The diplomatic gallery is located at No. 3, Niloufar Street, Movahed Danesh Street, Aqdasieh neighborhood.
