Iran's art scene thrives despite constraints

    Despite issues of censorship and cultural sensitivities, Iranian artists are working to change the image of their nation's art, at the same time educating the world on the Iran's contemporary art scene.

    Galleries and artists sometimes struggle with government guidelines, but they nonetheless manage to produce work that is often recognised in overseas exhibitions.
