Inaugurazione FARHAD GAVZAN
15 July 2016 from 6pm to 10pm, Spazio Nour.
"The human being is the main subject and drawing is the only concern of my mind."
Spazio Nour opens the exhibition of Farhad Gavzan, an emerging Iranian artist, who will present his solo show in Milan.
Farhad Gavzan draws on the arts and crafts of his homeland by practicing meditative art and creating authentic contemporary drawings.
While Gavzan's drawings are contemporary in nature, they are rooted in the historical arts of his native country. Through "Siahmashq", a calligraphic technique, Iranian calligraphers achieved meditative perfection in their craft. By repeatedly transcribing the same words, they would completely detach themselves from the meaning of the word, leaving space and importance only to the form.
Gavzan follows the same meditative path in his abstract drawings. His approach is intuitive and, considering the size of the paper, he starts with initial strokes and then takes shape in a contemporary study of anatomy.
