In this exhibition, 30 works by this self-taught artist will be showcased along with the artist’s personal belongings from Mokarrameh’s museum collection.


Ali Bolboli, painter and son of Mokarrameh Ghanbari, about the exhibition of Mokarrameh Ghanbari in the CAMA Gallery, said: “this year’s exhibition of Mokarrameh will be different. After she began painting, she painted on the doors, walls and home furniture. Her personal belongings will be exhibited in the CAMA Gallery for the first time; in this exhibition, we have set up a room as Mokarrameh’s house that will allow the audience to explore the depths of the artist’s works.”
He added: “For the first time 30 works from this artist will be showcased, as well as the first work of Mokarrameh’ painting on a piece of stone as well as her last work before her death.”

Mokarrameh Ghanbari is one of the most famous self-taught Iranian artists. She was born in a village in Mazandaran in 1928 and became a painter when she was over 60 years old. The significant artistic activity of Naneh Mokarrameh began when she was depressed because of the sale of her beloved cow, hence to relieve her sorrow, she found refuge in painting and enlivened whatever she had in her heart on the walls. One of the sons of Naneh Mokarrameh, who noticed his mother’s interest in art, bought her painting tools from the city to ease her working. 

She was so determined in her artistic path that she could hold her first exhibition in one of the best galleries in Tehran. The launch of this exhibition was the beginning of his fame. The fame that increased day by day and the name of Mokarrameh Ghanbari and her paintings were whispered. The first exhibition of Naneh Mokarrameh was held in 1995, and this was the starting point for her anticipation in many other individual and group exhibitions. Naneh Mokarrameh died in October 2005. 

Mokarrameh’s painting exhibition will be held from April 12th to 23rd at the CAMA Gallery.
