Malekeh Nayiny's Traveling Demons at Taymour Grahne Gallery

Taymour Grahne Gallery is pleased to present Traveling Demons, a solo exhibition by Tehran-born, Paris-based artist Malekeh Nayiny.  Both unnerving and playful, Nayiny creates devilish, sinister creatures reflecting our inner demons we never escape from.  Through one’s transformation from childhood to adulthood, Nayiny’s surprisingly kind and innocuous ‘demons’ accompany us, internally and externally, in a world dominated by superficiality, disillusionment and fear. 

The exhibition opens 10 January 2015 and runs through 20 February 2015. Taymour Grahne Gallery: 157 Hudson Street New York, NY 10013.
