3 Afghan Sisters Exhibiting Surreal Artworks

Three young Afghan sisters have staged their third art exhibition in Tehran, putting on show their surreal and abstract artworks.

Belqeys, Nargess, and Sakineh are three young Afghan sisters who are showcasing their surreal works of art in Not Art Gallery in Tehran.

Over the past two years, they have held two other exhibits to show their abstract works. The events have drawn a considerable number of refugees and art lovers.

2“We’ve been painting for five years,” says Nargess.

“When our first exhibition was held, we didn’t think that many visitors would come and see our works, but they welcomed the event, and we decided to hold our second exhibit,” she adds.

“The second exhibit was welcomed as well, and today, which is the opening of the third exhibition, even more visitors are coming here,” she further said.

“In our secondary school, we met our teacher Maryam Yeganeh. She taught us things different from what we already had in our arts lessons,” she says.

“Our style is surrealism. We love imaginary things. There are many things in our imagination which we tried to display in our paintings,” Nargess adds.

Asked about their future plans, she said they would like to hold similar exhibitions in Afghanistan and other countries.

The Tehran exhibition was kicked off on October 20 and will be open to visitors until October 25. Twenty-one tableaus painted by the three sisters are on display at the event.

Their works have been priced at Iranian currency Rls. 3,000,000 to 5,000,000 (roughly $75 to 125). One of the tableaus jointly painted by the three of them is priced at Rls. 12,000,000 (around $300).
