Since 2008, Candlestar has been advising collectors, art institutions and museums on the acquisition of contemporary Iranian art. Most recently we have been working with Brighton & Hove Museum to set up their collection of Iranian art.

Fariba Farshad, director of Candlestar, advised the Museum on how to introduce a collection of Iranian art into their fine art collection, which is comparable to the National Gallery, and contains some 2,000 paintings.

After reviewing the portfolios of a number of Iranian artists, Brighton & Hove Museum chose to invest in works by established photographer Sadegh Tirafkan, calligraphy artist Ebrahim Olfat, and photographer Nader Davoodi.
