TEHRAN.(Iranart) – The Tehran-based Iranian-rock fusion band Pallet performed pieces on Friday during the opening ceremony of an art exhibition by Akbar Nemati, the father of the band’s singer, Omid Nemati.
Nemati is displaying his three collections built up over the past 45 years in an exhibition at E1 Gallery.
One of the series features paintings of desert houses created through wood burning art.
“This collection is born of a friendship between fire and wood,” Nemati said at the opening ceremony of the showcase.
“No paint has been used in the creation of these paintings,” he added.
Nemati is also showcasing a collection of his sculptures created with recycled materials.
In addition, the exhibition displays a collection that features huge nails fixed in various positions.
“I have been thinking about art over the past 50 years,” Nemati, 70, said and added that these collections are the outcome of his thinking over the years.
All the money raised by the exhibition will be donated to charity.
The exhibition will run until September 1 at the gallery located at 1 Hamid Dead End, off Lesani Alley, Jebheh St., off Mahdieh St. in the Elahieh neighborhood.
