An Exhibition by Ovissi
Over the past five decades, Ovissi has firmly established himself as a brilliant and versatile artist whose elegant work presents a unique blend of European, Persian, and contemporary art. Combining his passion and admiration of his Persian heritage with his love of beauty and artistic expression, Ovissi has published over 15 books and is the recipient of numerous international awards and prizes. Today, his works are featured in public and private collections around the world.
Ovissi blends ancient themes with modern technique; he is very much a post-modernist, finding beauty in many of its traditional sources and recreating it for all of us to see. He invites us to enter a magical world, delight ourselves there, and to return to our daily round, refreshed and at peace.— Frank Getlein, Art Critic
