- About ABAN ART GALLERY
Aban art gallery was founded on October 25, 2013 by Samira Toosi. The gallery was also managed by Samira Toosi and we are honored to have Iman Raad as our visual identity designer and art consultant and Foad Aram as our graphic designer assistant. It was one of the largest and most influential art spaces in Mashhad, Iran, holding out more than 70 exhibitions and events in the field of visual arts in a period of two years.
We presented and Incubated works by artists in all visual fields with painting as our central program.
Aban spaces consisted of two separate halls: the bigger one with the area of more than 70 m² exhibited more professional art works and the other salon with the area of about 40 m2, supported younger amateur artists by giving them the opportunity to show their art works.
Every single event held at Aban art gallery attracted hundreds of people every week, including a few art-collectors; we take credit for being the first to encourage and train those who were eligible to become art-collectors.
- Outstanding Exhibitions:
As second largest metropolitan area and the biggest religious city of Iran, Mashhad has an infinite capacity for prospering art economy.
There is a great number of hotels and bazaars here in Mashhad that could be adorned and decorated by original art works and there are also many international tourists visiting the city every year who could help promote the art marketing.
Aban Art Gallery was the first private visual art gallery in Mashhad which paid attention to this issue and helped artists to flourish and sell their artworks.
Selling more than 350 paintings and photos to ARMAN HOTEL for instance, was one of our steps in achieving that goal.
We also hold some outstanding exhibitions and art events presenting works of great international artists such as SHADI GHADIRIAN, MOHAMMAD SHIRVANI, AHMAD NADEALIAN and other famous contemporary artists:
