Dubai, UAE, September 17th, 2013: Pro Art Gallery, the gallery that celebrates innovative art and collectibles is presenting the outstanding work of ‘Leily Derakhshani’ in a solo exhibition.   The exhibition will open on Wednesday September 18 2013 at 7 pm and will run till 30th September 2013 at the Pro- Art Gallery located in the Palm Strip Mall on Jumeirah Beach Road. This dynamic and exciting exhibition will focus its attention on the amazing style of the talented artist Leili Derakhshani.

A well-known painter from Iran, Leily’s exhibition features her paintings which depict facts related to her experiences over the years. “The present collection has been painted in several phases with dense oil color and Isoroph (a type of tar) on the canvas,” says Leily Derakhshani .

By resorting to stylized figurative paintings, Leily has found a simple expression, free from obscurity and complexity. In this phase she has shown her past in an artistic form and expressive language. These paintings display the changes and the transformations that appeared in Leily’s life in the past few years. Such changes are clearly visible and are a sign of her knowledge of figurative language as well as expresses her deconstructive view.

Tatiana Faure, Director of Pro Art Gallery explains, “Abstract art is always great work, by using colors and form we can express our feelings. Leily has good experience and has had great contribution in artistic creativity so I’m sure our visitors and collectors will enjoy her work.”
