Don't say cheese
Paintings by Nemat Lalei
March 19, 2001
Nemat Lalei, born in Rasht in 1952, dropped out of school when he was
fifteen. Before turning to painting in 1979, he traveled in Iran as well
as in Europe, where he visited museums. He started painting by making copies
of works by Picasso, Dega and Braque. Obviously, he doesn't need to any
more. He has found his voice. And a powerful one it is.
These paintings were originally featured in Elahe Gallery's web site.
