Massoud Arabshahi, a modernist Iranian painter who has been living abroad for many years, has held his last exhibition in Iran after decade.
He was born in Tehran, September 1935. He studied design and painting when he was a teenager and at the same time fascinated indigenous crafts, traditional arts and the ancient Persian heritage. This fascination, which always stayed with him, led him to the widespread exploration of patterns and codes, and the ancient objects from Ilam, Sumer, Assyria and Egypt, and his experiences with pottery helped him in this path. From the middle of the 40's, at the same time finishing his studies in the field of architecture at the Faculty of Decorative Arts of Tehran, he began work on reliefs and showcased his artworks in Iran, Europe and the United States.
