Portrait : Figuré et Défiguré is a series of commissioned portraits
where each of the seven selected artists represent their subjects in
a unique style and manner.
Throughout history, people have been represented through their
faces; where emotions and expressions are predominant.For this
exhibition, a group of outstanding, talented artists were selected to
create portraits each representing a subject of their own choice.
Whether the portrait is the farthest extent of abstraction, follows
an idealized artistic convention or the individual features of the
subject, its true value lies not in appearance but the ability to
portray the inner essence and significance of the subject; that
which constitutes true reality.
ARTISTS: Afarin Sajedi, Habib Farajabadi, Hiva Alizadeh, Maryam Ashkanian, Mojé Assefjah, Mojtaba Tabatabaie and Ramtin Zad
