Botté Gallery is proud to welcome Azarakhsh Farahani’s “Mural” exhibition in Toronto. This unique exhibition is composed of large scale paintings which come to life through animation, creating a dreamlike space. The characters and spaces represented in the paintings become alive through video art, dancing, singing and experiencing different visual and dramatic situations. No such concept has ever been experienced in any Iranian painting exhibition, and is therefore an innovation.
Mural has previously been exhibited in the largest private galleries in Tehran as well as in Düsseldorf, Chicago, Paris and Berlin. “Murals”

The story of persian carpets can be traced back to the ancient kingdom of Persia. For thousands of years, rugs have continued to be an invaluable asset to the Iranian culture and society. To this day, every region in Iran has its own distinct weaving style.
Because most of these rugs are still very much true to their roots and not woven with the export market in mind, a buyer gets a real sense of authenticity, a rug woven with traditional patterns and colours rather than one which may have been standardised or adapted to suit the Western market.
Most importantly, the rugs are not only floor coverings – they’re works of art. The skills used in weaving these rugs have been passed from generation to generation. Just as each weaver is different, each handmade carpet is unique.
dan [P]'s LAST PICTURE SHOW ?
November 8th, 2019
Having Attended Several Educational Institutions [Detroit Society of Arts & Crafts, now CCS, and Wayne State University In Michigan, and then Carleton in Ottawa], and having stayed connected to drawing and painting - while also learning about 2 and 3 dimensional computer graphics and animation, Dan Philips progressed from representational art work into some sort of this-century hybrid.
Not Just mixed media [being combinations of drawing, collage, photography, montage, painting and sculptural assemblage ] but becoming more and more obsessed with the intentional 3 dimensional distortion and intrusion - right into our viewing space - right into our lives.
The subject matters has also evolved - most recently emphasizing just WHO WE ARE, we humans who continue to change - but also continue to cause ourselves so much difficulty.

bottē gallery is proud to announce a new exhibition: Dream’s Ashes.
This installation was created in memory of the lives lost in the Ukraine PS752 flight. Here are some words by the artist, Mahsa Alikhani, about the subject matter; This work is a reflection of my personal sorrow when I think about my place of birth and how far I am from my roots. The fear of having my roots turned to ashes in the flames of hatred, under a dark cloud of smoke where there is no room for any hopes and growth. Each of the cypress tree in this collection is made possible by sunlight which is symbolic of better days to come.
