Library Shelf Location 18.TANA
Publication Date 2011
Description An artist-fabricator, teacher and collector, Parviz Tanavoli, born 1937, lives and works between Iran and Canada, and is a central figure in the contemporary art movement in Iran. Tanavoli is a founder member of the Saqqakhaneh School (a school of art that derives inspiration from Iranian folk art and culture). It has been described as a ‘spiritual Pop Art’ and is now considered the inspiration for progressive modern Iranian art. This exhibition, his first solo show in Britain since 1960, distinguishes him as one of the finest draughtsmen of his talented generation – almost the last to benefit from a Western Education. He graduated with honours in 1959 at the Accademia Di Belle Arti Di Brera, Milan under the sculptor Marino Marini. The selection of work on display features over thirty-five pieces including ceramics, fiberglass and bronze sculptures, paired with contemporary drawings, emphasising his abiding and joyful love for Persian architecture, culture and poetry.
