The G Hotel in Penang is currently hosting a solo exhibition by Iranian student Soudeh Pourebtehaj. She is currently studying in University Sains Malaysia up north is putting out her works at the show entitled Pure Temptation. The show is currently on display until the end of February and it will showcase some of the best portrait works of this very talented artist.
Soudehs work in various medium has seen her produce some very compelling still life paintings in this show where she is known to have derived the love for art since her teenage years. A strong advocate in visual arts, Soudehs work encircles around the styles of impressionism, surrealism, neo-expressionism and abstract styles where she paints using different mediums like watercolour, oil and acrylic and make sculptures as well.
The Pure Temptations show will surely be one that will exhibit her talents and skills at her best through the various portraits and figure drawings. In doing so, Soudehs body of works has distanced from the more traditional styles of Iranian art and injected a more contemporary feel to them. After all, it is surely a challenge for the student who is putting up her works amidst the growing and vibrant Malaysian art scene.
