Nafir: Behind the Sun (Regular Edition/Celadon Green)

  • 250,00€


"Behind the Sun" is a screen print released by Urban Spree Prints in November 2022 in the wake of the solo show of the Iranian artist NAFIR at Urban Spree Galerie in August 2022. The run of 100 was printed in Berlin by Oliver Nerlich Studio under the dirrect supervision of the artist between August and September 2022.

NAFIR is an anonymous, Teheran-based artist who uses the stencil technique to spray paint faces of unveiled Iranian women on carpets and other traditional fabrics. By gluing those pieces on the streets of Iran, he re-intrroduces courageous women into the public space, confronting and braving the judgment of the passers-by. What would look in the German streets innocuous or even "cute" acquires a much more contextual and risk-taking significance, as the recent and ongoing events following the death in custody of Mahsa Amini demonstrate.
