Works by Mostafa Sarabi are currently on view in a group exhibition at Peres Projects Gallery in Berlin. The exhibit entitled “What fruit it bears” will run until January 15, 2021.

 The exhibition showcases the work of a new generation of international artists from Eastern and Western Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South America, Asia, North America, and the Caribbean.

“What Fruit It Bears” is an exhibition project presenting works by artists whose practices are radically individual defying categorization, and yet together represent the present time.

This exhibition presents approaches to figuration, which seek equilibrium in understanding both oneself and the collective path forward.

Mostafa Sarabi often paints his family, depicting himself surrounded by his wife and child. He paints either that which he belongs to or that which belongs to him. In these paintings, he does not attempt to recreate a picture or a scene; instead, he creates his own world. He expresses how memory, history, and family are integral elements of Iranian life.

Mostafa Sarabi was born in 1983 in Iran; he lives and works in Tehran. Sarabi studied painting at Sahed University in Tehran. He has presented solo exhibitions in Paris at Balice Hertling (2019), in Tehran at the Delgosha Gallery (2018 and 2017), and the Atashzad Gallery (2009). His work has recently been included in group shows at Giardino Segreto in Milan (2019), in Tehran at Delgosha Gallery (2019 and 2018), the Shirin Gallery (2011), and the 5th Visual Art Experimental festival youth art (2010).
