The Armory Show 2022
JAVITS CENTER, 9 - 11 September 2022
SARAI Gallery (SARADIPOUR) is delighted to announce its participation at The Armory Show 2022, Presents section, with a solo presentation by young Iranian artist Parham Peyvandi at Booth P33, Javits Convention Center, New York City. Having majored in urban design before opting for an MA in painting, Parham Peyvandi's (b. 1989) paintings mainly focus on the contradictions as well as the connections between the urban and natural environments. His presented series, "Gazing Through the City", depicts scenes from a city made of bulky, grey cubic forms, devoid of any life or character, sometimes with grey lonely figures, in full contrast to the deep blue sky above and vibrant, detailed, and organic forms representing nature. In his visions, nature and man-made environments impossibly coexist without ever affecting or penetrating one another.
Last year, SARAI Gallery marked its first participation at the Armory Show 2021 with a solo presentation by Moslem Khezri, winning the Presents Booth Prize at the end of the event.
