The longest-running art fair in Southeast Asia, the Art Expo Malaysia (AEM) has hosted the works by five Iranian artists.
This year’s edition of the event, which marks its eighth officially started in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday. It has exhibited works by artists from more than 30 countries in the form of 70 galleries.
The Iranian artists’ works were displayed at Art Expo Malaysia 2014’s visual arts section. They include oil painting, watercolor, and tile art.
Iranian artists displayed at the event include Fathollah Marzban and Asghar Yaghoubi, who have had their works sported at the three booths assigned to the Islamic Republic.
The event was launched in 2007 by entrepreneur-impresario Datuk Vincent Sim Tiak Choo to fulfill his dream of having an art fair to bring together some of the finest artworks from all over the world to Kuala Lumpur under one roof, according to the AEM’s website.
