Miniature Painting 

 

Saleh employs the traditional technique of Persian miniature painting in a contemporary context. Many of these works focus on the subject of war, migration and identity. Often inspired by the symbolic motifs in traditional carpets, these works are made using natural pigments, gold leaf and hand made paper. 

 

Prints are available of all works.
