Ayyam Gallery Dubai (DIFC) is set host a new solo exhibition by Iranian artist Mohammad Bozorgi. Titled Against the Darkness, the show will feature handpicked works from the calligrapher and painter's Coloured Tears, Grey World project. The selected artworks reflect the ongoing conflicts within the Middle East and how that regional issue has affected the whole world.

Against the Darkness by Mohammad Bozorgi

Exquisitely combining abstract forms with bright colours, Bozorgi channels hope in his works. Juxtaposing bleakness and darkness with bright pops of life, simultaneously announcing that despair will not conquer people's lives he instead focuses on the beauty and peacefulness that still exists. Some of the highlights of the exhibition include the large painting Martyred Child as well as War and Freedom.
