Painter Portrays Lost Image of Home

Houses on fire are the subject of a series of realist paintings by Ali-Akbar Jahangard. “If There Is a Home …” is Jahangard’s solo painting show underway at Sareban Art Gallery in Tehran till September 17, Iranian Visual Art News Agency reported. “Jahangard’s paintings are inspired by his hometown Qasr-Shirin (in Kermanshah). The motif of fire is used symbolically, and to me it seems that the paintings describe the present social conditions,” said painter and instructor Iraj Eskandari, who attended the opening ceremony of the exhibition on September 7. 
In 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war, Qasr-e Shirin was a major war zone. The city was occupied by the invading Iraqi forces and when they were kicked out by the Iranian combatants they made sure that not a single wall stood.
