Green Tehran is a montage tribute to the protests against the Iran election and the regime. Starting on June 13, 2009, people poured out in their hundreds of thousands, defying official bans and suffering killings and brutality. The demonstrators adopted green as their unifying color. There were street protests through June, and as late as December 7, 2009. This movement and its images was recorded, not only through press reports, but through all the social networks, and the use of proxies when those were banned.
Here, images of three young women protesters are superimposed on an image of one of the demonstrations that had a huge green banner. I was able to find references to two photo-journalists for two of the 4 images I used as a basis for the painting: Oliver Laban-Mattei and Behrouz Mehrimages.
The painting is 18 inches high by 24 inches wide, acrylic on stretched canvas on heavy duty stretchers, with painted sides. A frame is not necessary. The painting is signed and dated on the back. I send a letter of provenance which increases the value of the work. All my artwork is copyrighted by Eleanor Gilpatrick. Copyright is nontransferable through the purchase of artwork.
Hello!! I am a contemporary realist painter of landscapes, people, still lifes, and abstracts that reflect my love of beauty and the way I see the world.
