Gallery Mamak is exhibiting Ahoo Hamedi's work this month.
One of Iran's promising young talents is Ahoo Hamedi. She was born in 1981 in Iran. Hamedi studied at the Azad University of Fine Arts, Tehran where she received her BA. Ahoo Hamedi's paintings are matured works of art that bear resemblance to sketches a painter would draw to start a major project. Her style is characterized by a striking lightness that reflects skill with watercolor, absence of background, lucid brushstrokes and clarity of the finished work.
The completed and signed paintings she presents to the viewer are as though the painter has painted them for herself. Each painting could be a page of her diary; like the scattered thoughts we put on paper to somehow explore our identity: notes made with the intention of self-discovery. The search for one's self is an endeavor of not just this painter, but an entire generation that, like Ahoo Hamedi, feels lost in a society where a broad gap divides the existing reality and the publicized ideology.
Hamedi has had solo and group exhibitions in such countries as Iran, UK, Canada, and Dubai. She is also a member of the Association of Iranian Painters. Ahoo Hamedi is presently living and working in Tehran.
