Painter Nasser Ovissi’s Works at TMoCA

Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art (TMoCA) hosts an exhibition of a selection of works by veteran painter Nasser Ovissi on Saturday, from 7 to 9 pm.
The exhibit showcases artworks from different life periods of the artist; a book containing 100 works by Ovissi will also be presented at the event, Honaronline reported.
Ovissi’s works are poetic, flowing between painting and calligraphy. A common element is beautiful faces of women and elegant, powerful horses in bright and shining colors.
Known as a painter who illustrates his poetries, he has a scrutinizing sharp view over Iranian painting style.
Ovissi, 83, studied law and political sciences at the University of Tehran and graduated in art from Beaux Fine Art in Italy. He was also a diplomat and cultural attaché at the Iranian embassies in Rome and Madrid.
Exhibitions in Nour Foundation in New York (2004), Abu Dhabi Cultural Center (2003), Embassy of Spain in Washington DC and Persian Cultural Center in Los Angeles (2002), National Gallery of Art in Amman, Jordan, and Original Art Gallery in France (2001) are among his activities.
He won the grand prize in the biennale of fine arts in Tehran (1962) and fourth prize in 1964, and grand prize at Monaco Contemporary Art Exhibition in France (1974), besides many more. Ovissi is the author of several books including ‘Omar Khayyam Etchings’ (1978).
