The Life Book is a survey of Ali Akbar Sadeghi’s seminal works, which moulded his artistic aesthetics over two decades, resulting in substantial reforms in the history of Iranian art. In this era, he experimented with various media and techniques such as graphic design, vitrail, film and etc., and re-examined many different genres and schools of art. Reviewing this phase of his activities reveal certain aspects of the artistic and sociological history of Iran during 1950’s to late 1970’s

The Love Book is a survey of Ali Akbar Sadeghi’s paintings, starting with series “Myth & Math” which took almost thirty years to be finished. His other series of works such as Coalition, Nails, Rebirth and Camouflage… gives a precise insight to artist’s fantastic surreal world.

The Lost Book is an anthology of Ali Akbar Sadeghi’s poetry, written between 2005 & 2006 during his bout of severe depression, when he was unable to pick up his brush and paint. The sense behind his poetry is to be vague about and naive of the world surrounding us. Each poem is accompanied by a small drawing composed of elements mentioned in the poem. The poems were born after the “Nail” series, when the artist was exhausted for painting. The “Rebirth” series is a result of hope he gained after his poetry period
