ABĀSSI IN THE SKY / CHEZ NINA
The intention was to contrast a geometric / modern / bright color and abstract urban landscape with its nearly contrary — an oriental / figurative oversized miniature on a soft background.
One was inspired by Giorgio di Chirico and the other by the famous 16th century miniaturist Abbāssi — who illustrated Ferdowsi‘s Shāhnāmeh (The Persian Book of Kings).
