As emerging artists, it is often that we find ourselves promoting our work and constantly seeking support for our art. However, how often do we see a theatre show, a dance performance or visit an art gallery? How often do we actually support our fellow art students?

Tanavoli, Parviz. Poet and Nightingale. Design for Rug, 1974.
Parviz Tanavoli was born in 1937 in Tehran, Iran, and currently lives in Vancouver, Canada. He studied sculpture in Milan at the end of 1950s and continued his studies in Minneapolis in the early 1960s. He soon became an important figure in contemporary sculpture; however, his work also includes painting, drawing, weaving, and prints. His art revisits Persian traditions and combines them with modern art. Tanavoli’s main motive is Heech, a word meaning “nothing”.
