Persian Art Projects

Minimal Shahnameh


This project is a combination of contemporary literature and visual arts done by Iranian artist, Jabbar Farshbaf. 


Writing the book of Minimal shahnameh, an inspiration of Shahnameh Fedowsi (Epic of Persian Kings), was an effort to collect all stories of the entire Shahnameh in one book.

The stories are summarized, simplified and written in two languages Farsi-English along with drawing tree diagrams for each dynasty. 

67 pieces have been painted special for this project, all in a size of 120x100 cm, Acrylic on canvas by Jabbar Farshbaf

Each painting related to a story
