Siyavash In Fire
Poster | 2018

“Siyavash in Fire” was a solo painting exhibition by M.J Pakravan at Ferdowsi gallery in Mashhad. The paintings were Pakravan’s reflection on Shahnameh’s epic story of Siyavash. Siyavash was a legendary Persian prince who, through a conspiratorial plan by Sudabeh (the Queen of Iran), was forced to prove his innocence by riding through a colossal mountain of fire.

Visual references

For the exhibition’s poster, we illustrated the title with the abstract surreal elements in Pakravan’s works. After a few copies of the poster were printed, we used the spray to randomly add white visual items on the compositions.
