The Work of Monir FarmanfarmaianJuxtapoz // Thursday, 05 Mar 2015
Born in Tehran in 1924, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian is at the forefront of contemporary Iranian art. Her distinctive aesthetic developed in the late 60s and 70s, rooted in a strong passion for her Iranian heritage. Her work illustrates a commitment to traditional Persian techniques and patterns, combining mirror mosaics, Islamic geometric patterns and reverse-glass paintings to create works that resonate both with traditional forms and a more modernist aesthetic.
