Museum Acquisition Benaki museum acquires painting by Ali Banisadr
We congratulate Ali Banisadr on his painting Fireworks (2021) becoming part of the collection of the Benaki Museum in Athens, Greece.
Ali Banisadr creates intangible worlds in which figuration and abstraction are delicately balanced, generating a rhythmic sense of motion in vibrant colours across the canvas. Influenced by the experience of synaesthesia, whereby his senses of colour and of sound are intertwined, he translates this internal state into visual terms. The enigmatic figures that populate his works are often imagined hybrids that stem from the artist’s fascination with mythological creatures and embody the constantly shifting identities of our increasingly digital world.
