“Presence of the Future”, a solo exhibition of Iranian mixed media artist Peyman Shaafi opened at the Tabari Artspace, a modern art gallery in Dubai. The selected works, which span pen and ink sketches and 3-dimensional canvases, form an enriching enquiry into the relationships shared between geometry, astrology and materiality. The artist’s modular works on canvas are rooted in his preoccupation with geometric shapes which have been taken as a symbol of universal harmony across cultures. Observing the world through the interpretive systems of both Western and Persian astrology, Shaafi regards the universe with awe. Shaffi looks to the future-seekers of the past, such as Nostradamus to better know the shape of the future. Drawing from this wisdom, the artist maintains that the unprecedented patterns in the skies of the present have given way to the unchartered changes in 2020 which we have begun to witness. The exhibit will be running until February 15.
