One of my favorite things about writing this blog is getting the chance to check out great local artists, and Bahram Javahry is no exception. The Iranian born artist specializes in paper sculptures, and will be showcasing his works at the Silk Purse gallery from August 24th- September 5th. Below is a description of the exhibit:
"Iranian artist Bahram Javahry brings his unique collection of paper sculptures to the Silk Purse. What started as a childhood fascination with the beauty and versatility of paper and the field of animation, has turned into an internationally acclaimed career. He has exhibited throughout BC and has won awards in film and animation in the US, Canada, Egypt, Korea, and the Czech Republic"
After having the opportunity to see his works prior to the opening, I highly recommend a visit to the exhibit. The craftsmanship and patience displayed in his sculptures are second to none, and the detail work has a soft and almost erethral quality. To see more of his works, you can visit his website here.
