    Jannat (B. 1991, Tehran, Iran) she has perused her art far from preset rules and through her experience and quest within her individual world. The universal pop culture as seen in the works of artists like Raymond Pettibone, emphasis on story-based quality of artworks, and rereading what has slipped into painting field from the world of animation and comic strip, have given a leg up to decrypt and reread Jannat’s works. Once faced with Jannat’s aesthetics, we see ourselves involved in speechful, busy-pattern, ironic artworks and a child of our own time. After some collective exhibition experience, it is now Jannat with her first individual art show titled as Khajeh Abdollah in Soo gallery. The present collection is story-based, recounting a narrative of years of Jannat’s life as a local of the street Khajeh Abdollah, Through these works, we face ample socializations, friends, cats and chats. As if we snuck through her diary. Khajeh Abdollah includes 22 pieces of her works include acrylic on canvas, acrylic on paper, video tapes, paper scrolls and wooden plates. With all being individual and contemporary in form, her works yet effect an ironic view upon Egyptian art in their representation, scrolls and plates lacking Egyptian art’s magnificence, still being pure plate and scroll.
