Iran's modern art

... as I'm seeing it. During my peace missions to Iran I always find time to explore its amazing art world. I mostly use the iPhone and do as much justice to the works under difficult conditions. To give you, dear visitor, an impression. Most of what you see and hear about Iran in Western mainstream media is one-sided and negative. It's very unfair. Iran is a tremendously rich civilisation and Tehran displays a vibrant cultural activity in all fields.
