Meem Gallery presents a joint exhibition displaying the work of Iran's leading contemporary artists Pooya Aryanpour (b. 1971, Tehran) and Morteza Darehbaghi (b. 1969, Tehran). Both artists studied at Azad University in Tehran and have held exhibitions in Iran, UAE, UK and US. Aryanpour's recent work explores the rotation of fluid circular forms which taper off into sharp edged points, which he describes as 'cutting objects', while tradition and symbols from religious rituals are constant sources of inspiration for Darehbaghi.
