"This exhibit contains 10 new works along with a selection of cartoons I had exhibited several years ago in the Iranian House of Cartoon," Chavari told the Persian service of ISNA on Sunday.

Portraits of Mohammadreza Shajarian, Abolhasan Saba, Faramarz Payvar, Gholamhossein Banan, Homayun Khorram, Shahram Nazeri and many more are among the works on display, he added.

"I was highly interested in music so I decided to link the art of painting and cartoon with music," he said.

Chavari, who also plays tanbur himself, said that he has plans to work on portraits of masters of arts in his next project.

The exhibit, which opened on Friday, will be running until January 8 at the gallery which can be found at 9 Ayatollah Mahmudi St. in the Niavaran neighborhood.
