Iran has a 3000 year old history of producing great artists. It is in the Persian DNA and it is good that the Persian Gulf puppets buy Iranian art as it helps promote Iranian culture and shows the sophistication of Iranian diaspora. Dubai has many Iranian artists and their works sell well at globally competitive prices. Good on Farhad Moshiri.
