Parviz Tanavoli Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Sculptor, b. 1937 -

Parviz Tanavoli (born 24 March 1937 in Tehran) is an Iranian sculptor, painter, scholar and art collector. Since 1989 he has lived and worked both in Tehran and Vancouver, Canada.

Tanavoli's work has been auctioned around the world leading to overall sales of over $9 million, making him the most expensive living Iranian artist. His Wall “Oh Persepolis” fetched $2.84 million at a Dubai Christie’s sale, in 2008, an auction record for a Middle Easton artist.* Tanavoli is known for his heeches, three dimensional representations of the Persian word for 'nothing', heech. Composed of three Persian characters in the style of nasta'liq, the three letters he, ye and ce are combined to produce the word ‘heech’.

His heeches are displayed in prestigious museums and public places such as British Museum, Metropolitan Museum, Hamline University, St. Paul Minnesota, Aga Khan Museum, Toronto and in the city of Vancouver.

Upon graduating from the Brera Academy of Milan in 1959, 1960 returned to Iran and taught sculpting at the Tehran College of Decorative Arts. 1961, Tanavoli taught sculpture for three years at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. He then returned to Iran and assumed the directorship of the sculpture department at the University of Tehran, a position he held for 18 years until 1979, when he retired from his teaching duties.

            May. 01, 2019

            * Parviz Tanavoli (Iran, born 1937) Farhad's lover (Shirin) and the Arab

            Est: £25,000 - £35,000

            Parviz Tanavoli (Iran, born 1937) Farhad's lover (Shirin) and the Arab mixed media on panel, framed inscribed "Parviz Tanavoli" in Arabic and English on the verso, executed circa 196593 x 48cm (36 5/8 x 18 7/8in). Provenance:Property from a private collection, CaliforniaAcquired directly from the artist in Tehran circa late 1960'sThe present work is an extremely rare appearance of an early painting by Parviz Tanavoli, demonstrating the incredible versatility with which this artist operated, oscillating between painting, sculpture, tapestry and across a vast array of materialsTitled "Farhad's Lover and the Arab Man", the present work is an interesting political and historical commentary on the turbulent changes in Iranian society during the invasion of the Rashidun Caliphate in the seventh century. Khosrow's lover, who was Shirin, a Sassanian princess renowned for her beauty, is being sexually defiled by an Arab soldier, perhaps a testament to the cultural desecration that would see much of Iran's pre-Islamic heritage lost till its later revival by the poet Ferdowsi From 1960 on, Parviz Tanavoli became a pioneering figure in contemporary Iranian art, revisiting Persian traditions and modern sculpture. While he was studying art in Tehran in the mid-1950s, the Iranian government's cultural policy was opening to Western practices, at the same time as encouraging the development of national and traditional arts. This led Tanavoli to study sculpture in Milan at the end of the 1950s and teach for two and a half years in Minneapolis in the early 1960s. Returning to Tehran and reflecting on the modernization of Iranian art, his studio soon transformed into a hub for exhibitions and collective reflection. Gathering artists and poets, his studio, Atelier Kaboud, was the fertile ground for the formation of the Saqqakhaneh School. The most influential avant-garde movement in 1960s Iran, the Saqqakhaneh School developed a visual language drawing on popular culture and its symbols, re-appropriating traditions with a modernist stance.Parviz Tanavoli's practice, developed throughout the 1960s and 1970s, is characterised by the modern incorporation of traditional techniques, notably everyday handicrafts found in the blacksmiths, foundries and pottery workshops of Tehran, and traditional subjects such as popular love stories as depicted in Persian poetry. Recurrent in his works are motifs taken from religious folk art, especially the saqqakhaneh, a votive fountain protected by metal grills. Many of his works pay tribute to the legendary love story of Farhad, the only sculptor mentioned in classical Persian poetry, who challenged the Sassanian King Khosrow Parviz (r. 590 to 628), his rival for the hand of the beloved princess Shirin. Tanavoli reinterprets, throughout his works, this poetic legend as well as icons found in Shiite folk art, such as the cage, the lion, the lock and the bird, using geometric forms and new mediums.

The Idea of making nothing that was for me enough, but later I realized great Iranian poets like Khayam, Rumi and Hafez all had dealt with this single word," Parviz Tanavoli'If the astonishing resemblance between a Heech and a human-being did not exist, I would have never involved myself in making it'- Tanavoli.Bonhams have the distinct privilege of presenting two superlative examples of Tanavoli's bronze twisted Heech sculptures. In 1965, Tanavoli protested against the empty overuse of traditional forms and gave new depth to the two dimensional calligraphy on paper by transforming it into three dimensional 'Heech' sculptures. His signature Heech sculptures are composed of three Farsi letters in the Persian calligraphic style of 'nastaliq'. With its elegant curvilinear shape and hollow eyes, the Heech is anthropomorphised, gazing playfully at its viewers. Here are two fine examples of Tanavoli's use of bronze; a medium he embraced throughout his career and through which he found great versatility in form and freedom of expression. The craftsmanship and dexterity that is reflected through these polished bronze sculptures reveal the unequaled talent of Tanavoli; confirming his leading and pioneering role in sculpture and philosophy. To Tanavoli, the concept of nothingness has multiple layers of meanings and is not an expression of despair and hopelessness. One interpretation relates to Persian Sufism, in which nothing is an aspect of God, who creates everything from nothing. Tanavoli's nothingness permeates everything, it is an animating and creative force; it is the nothingness that precedes creation, the nothingness out of which we are born, from which ideas come to life and out of which bonds are formed. The other interpretation is that the physical shape of the word has a figurative aspect, an appealing volume and a life-like form. Tanavoli crafted numerous Heechs over the years in various mediums such as bronze, ceramic, fiberglass and neon and in many forms and colours to expose the world with the concept of "nothingness". The repetition of design in his oeuvre is also reflective of the traditional Islamic practice of repeating a craft in the quest for perfection. Tanavoli was able to fuse this very specific translation of Persia calligraphy with contemporary idiom and abstract sculpture. Heech incorporates the best of his passion for Persia history that he exemplifies as well as this knowledge and skill as a contemporary artist. His practice focuses on the intersection of both traditional Persian folk art and contemporary practices in a career spanning over six decades.Tanavoli was born in Tehran in 1937 and was one of the very first students to enrol in the newly established Tehran School of Fine Arts in 1955. A few years later, he left Iran to further his education in sculpting at the Brera Academy of Milan and graduated in 1959. Tanavoli then went to the Unites States to serve as artist-in-residence at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design where he became exposed to pop art and consumer culture. Upon his return to Iran, Tanavoli established Atelier Kaboud, which became the birthplace of the most significant and avant-garde Iranian modern art movement, the Saqqakhaneh movement. Here artists were dealing with contemporary issues and reconciling past traditions with contemporary outlooks.
