Iranian painter and graphic designer Behzad Shishegaran has launched an online exhibition entitled "Collapse" on Instagram, Telegram and Facebook to raise funds for the victims of the devastating earthquake that hit Kermanshah region in western Iran last month.

"Each day one collage will be put on view at my Facebook, Instagram and Telegram accounts for sale for the art lovers," Shishegaran said in a post published on his Instagram on Saturday.

The collection contains about 20 paintings and the online charity exhibit, which opened on Saturday, will last for 20 days.

Copies of the works are available at much lower prices than the original works.

Shishegaran said that the social networks provide a better opportunity for him to share works with a wider range of users.

"The networks have also provided the means for me to be in better contact with Iranian expatriates and to reduce my publication expenses," he has remarked.

A devastating earthquake killed hundreds and displaced thousands in the western Iranian province of Kermanshah on November 12.
