An exhibition of paintings by self-taught artist Monavvar Ramezani known as "Nanny Hassan" is being held at the Nami Gallery of the Iranian Artists Forum today. The 76-year-old Nanny Hassan lives in the town of Qeydar of Zanjan Province. She used to weave carpets and draw carpet designs, but found interest in paintings over the past few years.
Ramezani's paintings are rooted in the folktales and traditional rituals of the region. The exhibit will be running until July 8.
