LONDON.- CAMA Gallery announce a launch exhibition of 30 Iranian artists in anticipation of opening their permanent space in Londons St. James in early 2018.
CAMA Gallery are the pioneering market leaders in Modern & Contemporary Iranian art. Following the success of their live online gallery and exhibiting space in Tehran, they now look forward to the inauguration of their new London gallery in St. James. CAMA mark their arrival in the capital with an exclusive drinks reception at Londons iconic Hotel Café Royal in Mayfair.
The launch taking place on Wednesday 29th November will include an exhibition showcasing the works of Irans best contemporary and modern artists, including the masters Sohrab Sepehri, Bahman Mohasses and Parviz Tanavoli. Committed to bringing the booming and increasingly accessible Iranian art scene to the heart of London, CAMA offer access to exclusive premier works.
An untitled work from Iranian poet and painter Sohrab Sepehris Tree Trunk series sold for 360,000 USD and was the highest grossing item sold at the Sothebys 20th Century Art: Middle East auction in London on Monday 23 October, 2017. Parviz Tanavoli is best known for his Heech sculptures, one of which recently sold at Christies for 263,000 USD. His prolific artistic output has spanned over six decades and could easily fill a dedicated museum. Tanavoli's work is held in more international museums than any other living Iranian artist.
Irans contemporary art market is outperforming that of any other Middle Eastern country. Works by Iranian artists shone at Sotheby's, grossing over 60% of the 2.7 million USD generated by the 20th Century Art: Middle East auction. Persian/Iranian art has one of the richest art heritages in world history, with a distinctive hold on various artistic disciplines including architecture, painting, weaving, pottery, calligraphy, metalworking and sculpture.

CAMA showcases art of all genres in physical galleries and online, offering contemporary artists exposure and global recognition.
