Vale Hossein Valamanesh 1949-2022
Vale Hossein Valamanesh 1949-2022.
We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Iranian Australian artist Hossein Valamanesh.
During the past 49 years he established himself as one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, often creating work in collaboration with his Port Pirie-born wife Angela and their son Nassiem. Most recently, DFAT was proud to have worked with Valamanesh to launch a major solo exhibition “Puisque tout passe (This will also pass) ” at the Institut des Cultures d’Islam in Paris, on show until 13 February 2022. Mixing his Iranian roots with those of his land of adoption, this exhibition can be viewed online at: www.institut-cultures-islam.org/hossein-valamanesh-puisque-tout-passe/. Hossein is remembered for his powerful and poetic artworks.
