Mir Hossein Mousavi's abstract paintings

Hossein-Mousavi-abstract-paintings-01-iMir-Hossein Mousavi Khameneh (born March 1942), was the last Prime Minister of Iran from 1981 to 1989, and later he developed his passion for painting and writing poetry.

Mousavi served as the president of the Iranian Academy of Arts until 2009 when conservative authorities removed him due to his 2009 election candidacy and protest.

He was also the main contributor to architecture, and buildings such as Kanoon-e Tohid in Tehran, Beynolharamein Bazaar in Shiraz, Haft-e-tir Martyr’s tomb in Tehran’s Behesht-e Zahra, and Salman mosque in the presidential residence.

Mousavi is a relative of fellow Khameneh native Ali Khamenei: Mousavi’s grandmother is Khamenei’s paternal aunt.
