DEMOLITION – A Solo Show by Fereydoon Omidi
20 June – September 2012 – XVA Gallery DIFC
Through this new body of large–scale works Omidi captivates and hypnotizes the viewer with his rhythmical repetition of letters. Omidi layers oils to create a dancing scene of characters and colours.
Omidi’s fascination with calligraphy began during his studies, when he first learnt the ancient script. However it was not until 2007 that he incorporated the technique into his artistic practice.
Omidi’s artistic career has seen him take part in exhibitions around the world, including Japan, Venice, Paris, Dubai and his native Tehran.
