Sotheby's has recently published an article by Roxane Zand on Middle Eastern artists at the 26th editioin of Turin's 'Artissima', including Meghdad Lorpour who was presented at the fair by Dastan's Basement. Click here to read it in full.
From the Article: "Dastan's Basement, another leader on the Tehran art scene and founder of the local Tir Art Fair, had a solo show of sublime works by Meghdad Lorpour. Seascapes (entitled Daryabar, referring to the shore) pulled the viewer into its wistful contemplative perspective. With a finesse more associated with Far Eastern artists, Lorpour communicates on many levels."
