The 2-day event was slated to introduce Persian contemporary visual arts through the artist’s training workshop and lecture. Faramarzi displayed the whole process of developing an art work, from the start to the end, by live painting in front of the audience while explaining the course. Ali Faramarzi has had 23 solo and 40 group exhibitions in Iran and other countries. He has also written more than 50 essays in newspapers and magazines. Organized by the Persian Student Association (PSA) at Stanford University in California, the event was held on May 16 and 17, 2012.
