Cut mirrors on wood

1978 , Iran (Islamic Republic of)

Contemporary Artist, Daniel Mehdi Nabavi -1978 Daniel is mostly known through his artwork using cut mirrors, next to his sculptures, portraits etc. To him mirrors are brillant to use as material to create Pop Art. He says that we don’t perceive objects as they really are, we see everything through our own perspective. This means that we view all we connect to as we want it to be or imagine it to be true. When you see a portrait of someone or an sculpture of something in his art, In fact it is not about them, but they are about your view on them. How you see them and how you wish them to be, it means we are looking for ourselves in everything and anything that we are looking at all the time. That’s why mirror works for him, because you see yourself in front of his work reflected by mirrors. Between 1998-2019 he had about 40 solo and group exhibitions in Art Galleries and museums in Iran, UAE, France, Switzerland, Turkey, Portugal, USA, etc, His artworks have been displayed in Scope Basel, Art Dubai, Abu Dhabi Art Fair, Art Expo New York, Beirut Art Fair, etc. And they have been sold in international auctions like Ayyam Auction, Opera Gallery Auction, Christie’s, Tehran Auction, etc
