Painted by Katy Kianush, Copyright © 2003



'Persia' is the first in a new series of paintings by Katy Kianush, which will be featured in her 2003 solo exhibition, entitled: "Modern Classics".
The inspiration for these paintings has come from the art of ornament and design of different cultures.
Here, we can see the use of classic design details together with symbols associated with 'Persia'; glorious architecture, luxurious fabrics and carpets, the 'rose'...
'Persia' herself stands proud and symbolises the beauty of Persian art.
This is an intricate and highly detailed painting, which has been executed in acrylics and pen and ink. Acrylic gold, silver and copper relief paints have also been used to add embellishment.
