Tehran
چرخش چرخ ها و چرخ دنده ها به سمتی ... ذهن من که می رود به سویی دیگر ...
یک صدای خشن ... قلم موی من که کشیده شد روی بوم و یک خش ... خش ... خشن بود صدای پیچیدن مهره ها و پیچ ها و پیچیدن چرخ دنده ها دور یکی، حول دیگری و ... ذهن می پیچید طرف "آدم"ی، "خود"ی، ذهنی که می پیچید این حوالی دنبال گریزی، راهی و خش ... رنگی که به بوم نشست و صورت خنده اش نیست به صورت خاکستری ماشینها ... که یکی و صد و هزارتا از ذهن خواب آلودمان بیرون می آمد، روی ریل های کارخانه ای که از رنگهای ندیده، از روزهایی که یکی بعد قبلی گذشت، محصولات خاکستری گذشتند و خش ... و رنگی، خنده ای که نمی شد و نباید نگذرد از روی این همه سرمای نشسته بر چشم ها، بر پاها و دستها ... که حالا می کشم روی یک سپیدی بر نشاندن کم زندگی بر روی روزها و سالهای مردگی، چیزی غیر از این دستها در دست ندارم ... این دستها، این رنگها، این قلم ... و این صورتها، این خنده های نشسته بر این همه صورت ... که نخواسته ... که نمی خواهد، که دلش نمی خواهد بخوابد ... دلم همی خواهد بخوابد و بیداری من اینهاست ... شاید بیداری من ... شاید ...

The wheels and  the cogwheels rotating to one direction …. My mind goes the other way …
A coarse sound … my brush moves on the panel and a rustling … rustling … then the rough sound of bolts and screws, the cogwheels, rotating, one round the other … my mind rotating towards a man, a self, a mind that wanders, searching for an escape, a way, … rustling … a color on the panel, no smile on the gray face of the machines … one, two, one thousand coming out of our sleepy minds, on the colorless rails of the factory, from the days one after the other, gray products moving … rustling … and a color, a smile that couldn’t and shouldn’t pass over the coldness sitting on the eyes, on the legs, on the hands … now I draw on the white to bring a little life to the dead days and the dead years, … I have nothing in my hands but my hands … my hands, colors, and this brush … and the faces, these smiles on all these faces … not wanting … doesn’t want, his heart doesn’t desire to sleep … my heart doesn’t desire to sleep, and this is my wakefulness, … maybe my wakefulness … maybe …



The guys still walk on the streets
Hamidreza Ghafouri Daemi Born in Tehran 1357 (1978)
من از کودکی نقاشی می کردم. من هنرمندی هستم خودآموخته. همیشه به هنر فکر می کردم ولی شرایط زندگی من به صورتی شد که مجبور شدم جذب کار صنعتی بشوم، در کارخانه ایران خودرو که یک شرکت ماشین سازی است، مشغول به کارشدم. ولی همچنان به هنر فکر می کردم. 
در محیط کارم که بودم "در خط تولید" در زمانهای استراحتم طراحی می کردم و یا زمانهایی که از محیط کار به سمت خانه برمی گشتم داخل سرویس (اتوبوس) از همکارانم طراحی می کردم. محیط کار من فوق العاده خشک و صنعتی بود. همیشه به دنبال مسکنی بودم برای آرامش، که تنها مسکن من نقاشی کردن بود. مدتها نقاشی کردم و کارهایم را به دوستان هنرمندم که بعدا با آنها آشنا شدم نشان دادم و آنها در مورد کارهای من نظر می دادند. تناقض شدیدی بین کار صنعتی من و کار هنری من بود. در مجموعه "پسرها در خیابان هنوز راه می روند" من تاثیر گرفتم از همکاران پسر، آنها بعد از اینکه از کار به سمت منزل می رفتن در خیابان بی هدف راه می رفتند، و زندگی می کردند بدون اینکه هیچ آینده روشنی در انتظارشان باشد.
در این سالها من در بینالها و نمایشگاههای مختلف در داخل ایران و خارج ایران شرکت کردم در زمینه نقاشی و تصویر سازی کتابهای کوک که در تعدادی از آن بینالها جزو نفرات برگزیده بودم.
فضای نقاشی هایم رئالیسم اجتماعی است و از اجتماعی که در آن زندگی می کنم تاثیر گرفتم. پسرهای نقاشی های من همان پسرهایی هستند که در محیط کارم بودن و شکل دهنده همین اجتماع هستند که در آن کار و زندگی میکنند و روابطی که بین آنها برقرار است در جامعه من به شکلی دیگر و نوعی دیگر از احساس که بین پسرها برقرار است.
دغدقه من همیشه انسان بوه چه مرد و چه زن، انسانهایی که در شکل دادن کارهای بزرگ نقش مهمی داشتند ولی هیچ وقت به آنها اهمیتی داده نشده.
همیشه به این فکر می کردم که آدمها و محیط کارم را به دنیا نشان بدهم. آنها همان انسانهایی هستند که در جامعه من زندگی می کنند.


I started painting when I was a child and I learned on my own. Although my life drove me to work in an industrial environment, but art was all I thought about. I was working in Iran Khodro, a car manufacturing factory, but thinking about art. 
When I was at work, in “production line”, I would draw during my breaks, or on the way back home from work I drew sketches of my co-workers on the bus. My working environment was very sad and depressing. I was constantly searching for tranquility, and my only tranquilizer was painting. I would paint and show it to some of the artist friends I had met, and ask for their opinion, and they would tell me about their ideas.  There was a sharp contradiction between my work and my love of art. In the collection “The guys still walk on the streets”, I was influenced by my co-workers who walked aimlessly on the streets on the way to home after work. They lived without having a clear future waiting for them.
I have participated in different paintings and books pictures biannuals and exhibitions in Iran and outside of Iran. I was chosen as the top participants in some of those biannuals and exhibitions. 
The atmosphere of my paintings is Social Realism, influenced by the society in which I live. The guys in my paintings are those at my work place, the ones who make up the society in which they live and work and the relationships between them is of another shape and another kind of emotions between the guys.
Human being has always been my concern, men and women who were part of big works but were never paid any attention to. 
I have always thought of showing the environment and the people of my work place to the world. Those are the people who live in my society.

More About Tehran

Overview and HistoryTehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."Getting ThereMehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.TransportationTehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.People and CultureMore than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.Things to do, RecommendationsTake the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.Tehran is also full of museums such as:the Contemporary Art Museumthe Abghine Musuem (glass works)the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museumthe museum of carpets (!!!)Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniaturesand most stunning of all,the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.Text by Steve Smith.
