Farin Rohanian: these days Shirin Galleryt is host of one of the most different exhibitions held during recent years. “Creation of Eve” by Mostafa Damirchi (Dachi) has a different glance to the Iranian painting art. In this exhibition 17 works of this experienced artist have been exposed all are new manifestation of miniature. He has tried to expose the details in a big frame in order to give new concept to the details of miniature.

Damirchi (Dachi) has tried to create works with big dimensions 4-8 meters by using the fluid and circle lines. His art makes the audience to re-discover the miniature art. He has had an abstract attitude to the Iranian miniature. He has not relied on classical rules of anatomy but has given fluidity to the fissures of his works.

Generally speaking Damirchi has created a contemporary narration of Iranian painting art in “Creation of Eve” by using the organic colors like coffee, chocolate, cacao, tea and colorful spices.

He tried to emphasis on narrations as well.

Mostafa Damirchi is one of the winners of 4th Tehran Painting Biennial in Tehran who has convened several exhibitions in foreign countries. He was born in 1978 and is a graduate of Graphics but he used to design always and cannot stop painting,

He started his painting 15-16 years ago a process which started with design and then professional painting.

One of his important exhibitions was in Barg Gallery which was held before biennial, painting is beyond a job for him , , he lived actually, travelled, painted , he is seeking diversity of style and techniques, for example his previous exhibition was oil color and in this exhibition he has  used natural materials like coffee, saffron, turmeric and cinnamon with chemical studies about them. He believes that nothing is by accident. He never experiences fear in the lie.

He always enjoyed figurative works because he can find anything in it. The subject of his exhibition is “Creation of Eve” i.e. different angels of human being, the creation is made every moment and creation is always with us.

The techniques of organic colors have 150 years of history in Iran. He always interested in miniature and he experienced mixing the organic colors with the chemical colors like acrylic.

He prefers actual studies, because every book is result of view point of human.
