Happy Nowruz!

Norooz, Anson Liaw

Anson uses his densely layered imagery and energetic lines to celebrate the beginning of the Persian New Year, a predominantly secular holiday that is enjoyed by people of many faiths. Nowruz has been celebrated for over 3000 years in Central Asia, Western Asia, the Caucasus, Black Sea Basin, and the Balkans.

Falling on the first day of Spring, Nowruz also marks the New Year in the Iranian solar calendar.

Anson’s style – and his multiple variations on this new image – seem fitting for this holiday that is filled with symbolism and shared among various cultures.

Which one is your favorite?
