Tehran-based painter Romisa Sakaki introduced herself to the European audience last spring, during the Young Persian Artist (#YPA) group show HOPE DREAMS DESIRE.


Regardless of the current atmosphere of departure, being an artist from Iran basically automatically implies that your work will be viewed as being political, since the consequences - personal and socio-economic ones - of the revolution and its related theocracy will somehow be forever present in your creative DNA.

OPEN WALLS Gallery is proud to present the first solo show overseas of Teheran-based artist Romisa Sakaki, a prominent and urgent voice of her generation and member of the always impressive #YPA collective. Her work bridges paintings of a society in change with snapshots of a seemingly carefree time spent with the ones close to her heart, which she captures with a unique colour palette and clear lines.

This particular show presents the second chapter of the fruitful collaboration between OPEN WALLS Gallery and Young Persian Artists #YPA. “Selfies In The City“ will be on display between April 2nd - 23rd, and introduces a representative body of work of Sakaki to the Berlin audience. The artist as well as #YPA founder and curator Mahsa Mergenthaler-Shamsaei will be present at the vernissage.

The catalogue of the show is available via this link.
