The Works of Sweden's Omid Delafrouz

December 06, 2012

One of the major highlights of Art Basel so far was seeing the work of Tehran-born, Gothenburg, Sweden based fine artist, Omid Delafrouz. With two large-scale works and two studies displayed in the Andréhn-Schiptjenko booth at Art Basel Miami Beach, Delafrouz had a sense of youthful humor and nostalgia quite rare to see in the large fair. It had a touch of urban, skate culture, mixed with the style of someone like Alex Katz.
