Overview

Ghasemi Brothers, a collective that includes Morteza, Sina and Mojtaba Ghasemi Sheelsar have been working together since 2015. Each one of them works as a painter individually but when part of the collective, they work together on a single piece. Their collaborative work has been featured in “Red Room” (Dastan’s Basement, July 2016), “Red Room 2: Migratory Birds” curated by Roya Khadjavi (Elga Wimmer Gallery, New York, April 2017) and “Blue Room” at V-Gallery (A Dastan:Outside Project) in 2018.
The trio work freely and without thematic or technique-related limits, giving them a lot of freedom in expressiveness. Such an approach has caused them to be able to continue working together. In the beginning they worked to create a single discourse based around the themes and interests that they share. Following these steps and driven by intuition, Ghasemi Brothers gradually started to paint objects that were reminiscent of their native city, the coastal area of Bandar Anzali, and its natural elements including the Caspian Sea, rain, and the color blue.
