In Anvari’s east-western carpet paintings, Orient and Occident merge into a Harmonious unity that comes from the cultural diversity and lives on it. In his textile paintings, for which he uses hand-knotted Persian carpets, which he abstractly paints, the artist composes the ambivalence of his own identity. Rooted firmly in the ancient soil of his native Persian culture, the painter expresses imaginatively and deliberately in the visual language of European art, which moves and drives him. “ I am enthusiastic about the carpets“, says the artist . Not only from their colors and ornaments , but I also see the people who created them.“ In the textiles exported all over the world, the painter also paints his own journey across borders and continents. Anvari’s pictures are equally images of self- discovery and self-experience, such as bridges between cultures.
