Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi Hosts Art Opening
of Mohammad Hourian’s Work

“My work is clearly influenced by Iranian tradition,
while I add my own creativity to reflect the times I live in.”

On Friday, August 19th, 2005, Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi hosts the monthly Third Friday’s Art Reception in his City Hall office, Room 282. This month’s featured artists is Mohammad Hourian.

Mohammad Hourian was born in Hamedan, Iran, the capital of ancient Persia. At age 12 he apprenticed with Haj Hosen-I-Eslamiyan, the greatest Persian miniaturist of this century. At age 19, Horian won public recognition in his first one-man show of paintings at the Gallery of the University of Tehran. At age 20 he became the youngest artist to be elected to the National Academy of Fine Arts. In 1976 the German government invited him to visit West Germany and exhibit his work at the Goethe Institute. That same year he traveled throughout Europe, Japan and the United States displaying his artwork.

Mr, Hourian is a Bay Area resident and the owner of Hourian Fine Art Publishing and Hourian Fine Art Galleries, both based on Union Street in San Francisco.
