Today I Saw the Sun – Hadi Alijani

2013-04-26 to 2013-05-08




Solo show by Hadi Alijani

For his second solo show Hadi Alijani draws inspiration from his detailed study of “Noskh e Behbahan”, a magnificent illustrated book which is now kept at Topkapi Museum in Istanbul.
The rich literature of Iran, our fine arts with its hundreds of years of history, as well as the ever present Iranian satire, are all instruments that Alijani uses in his path to uniqueness. The successful transfer of an older visual tradition in to bold canvases is indicative of the tactful intelligence of a young artist that does not blindly follow western artistic styles.
