نقاشیهای شهلا احمدی مقدم همچون کارهای گذشته او تلفیق فضای انتزاعی با عناصر فیگوراتیو است و این نمایشگاه آخرین آثار او بعد از بازگشت از آمریکا به ایران است

تنوع در استفاده از ماده و متریال نگاهی موشکافانه در آثار او ایجاد کرده این آثار در نگاه اول چشم نوازند ولی در لایه های درونی تاثیر اجتماعی و اندیشه ناب یک هنرمند جستجوگر نمایان است. اندیشه ای برای متحول کردن نگاه مخاطب امروزی در برخورد با اثر هنری معاصر

این آثار زمان مشخص ندارد، خیالی هستند، عناصر و فضاها با بداهگی انتخاب شده اند فضای تجریدی و ساده سازیهای آگاهانه در مقابل عنصر حقیقی و آشنا واکنشی است در مقابل طبیعت برای خلق آثارش. نقاشیهای او ماهیتی جدا از ترئین صرف و بی هدف را دارند. بسیار شاعرانه مینمایند. پس زمینه های رنگی به همراه تقسیم بندیهایی که در زیر آن هیجانات قبلی قلم نمایان است، نگاه نماد پردازانه او در انتخاب پرندگان و حضور شادمانه آنها در جای جای سطح بوم و تلفیق آن با گیاهانی ابداعی و به کارگیری نقوشی همچون سنگها و خطها و بافته هایی تشعیر مانند ، فضایی آیینی ایجاد کرده است. در نگاهی دیگر به این آثار برخورد ظریف و آگاهانه به نگارگری ایرانی مشهود است . فضایی در همین نزدیکی، پیوندی امروزی با نقش های کهن گل و مرغ، پیوند هنر هنرمند ایرانی و حکمت شرقی

This is an overview of Tehran

Overview and History

Tehran 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 There

Mehrabad 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.


Tehran 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 Culture

More 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, Recommendations

Take 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 Museum

the Abghine Musuem (glass works)

the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museum

the museum of carpets (!!!)

Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniatures

and most stunning of all,

the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.
