A Different Genre of Tehran’s Expansionism

Aylar Shahbazi is holding a solo painting and installation art exhibition at Aaran Gallery of Tehran’s historical monuments and iconic buildings. 
Shahbazi explores rapid developments in the urban Tehran through painting and drawing on pieces of cardboard and aluminum sheet, Honaronline reported on its Persian website. 
Among the installation arts featured at the exhibit are iconic buildings, namely the Milad Tower, the famed Café Naderi and the former Tehran Municipality Building, are among his works.
The installations are simple designs in black and white including drawings of human figures in different sizes.  n canvas and paper Shahbazi also shows paintings from the interior of buildings. The paintings basically are highly critical of the current trend of disorganized and inefficient urban development in the city of 12 million and its colossal negative effects on everyday life of Tehran residents. 
The exhibition is a narrative of the residents’ experience with construction work and the urban expansion that is penetrated into the mountains of north Tehran. Another focus of the show is the unending search for human identity in modern times.
The painting exhibition, opened on May 11, is to run until June 8. Aaran Art Gallery is located at No. 5, Lolagar Alley, Neauphle-le-Château Street.
