Hamed Sadr Arhami
Sadr Arhami’s paintings belong to the category of neo-surrealist art. Sadr Arhami’s works are obviously indebted to the legacy of artists such as Salvador Dali and René Magritte; Although in some of his paintings, he tries to create a link between the traditions of Iranian art and modern painting methods by adding formal elements of painting. This point also puts him in the category of neo-traditionalist painters. This contemporary painter was born in the city of Isfahan. Sadr Arhami was in charge of Mehrfam group of painters for some time and was a member of Image art group. In 2009, a documentary film was made about the life and works of this artist. In 2013, his works were also displayed in a group exhibition titled “Neoclassicism” in Tehran Museum of Contemporary Arts.
