 This collection is a result of 30 years of Sadeghi's artistic life in Persian surrealism.

 

In 1977 Sadeghi stopped making films altogether and devoted himself entirely to painting, beginning with a surrealistic style and resuming his watercolour after many years. “When”, he remarks, “I feel relieved from the tensions that lead me to surrealist painting, I turn to watercolour in my moments of spiritual quietude.”

 

Surreal scenes with strong references to traditional Persian motifs, myths and stories are among the key characteristics of the artists’ works and they come to life in this series. Many know Ali Akbar Sadeghi’s work through his iconic paintings that belong to this series.

 

The First painting he created was inspiration of splitting in half of an illegitimate in which he remembered from his childhood from religious narrators.
