poster paint on heavy cardboard
Both Farah Ossouli and the Pakistani artist Shahzia Sikander "appropriate the language of miniature painting, yet re-present it in a contemporary idiom." Nice clip of Shahzia excerpted from the PBS documentary series Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century.
JL also dreams of going to Iran one day. Any way that we can arrange an art blogger tour to Tehran?
