(Persia Digest) - CAMA Gallery in St James Westminster is the only gallery inaugurated for the contemporary art of Iran in London.
CAMA Gallery has recently opened in London with 50 works by 19 contemporary Iranian artists, attracting crowds of art lovers. Iranian artworks are some of the most sought after in the Middle East.
Mona Khosh-Eghbal, Gallery director, has said: “I think modern Iranian art has not received the accreditation it deserves in the professional world of art. It has not been showcased globally according to its merits. The awareness that has been raised now is attracting attention to this rich, versatile art.”
Half the works displayed here were sold prior to the opening for thousands of dollars each.
