Reza Shafahi, the Diary of a Gambler

Iranian artist Reza Shafahi (b. 1940) began his career in his 70s, having spent the preceding decades largely disconnected from his family, working through an addiction to gambling. Art became a way out when his son, artist Mamali Shafahi, invited him to participate in a daily drawing exercise. For the first time, a generous selection of Reza’s works are collected within a stand-alone volume, celebrating the full scope of his artistic practice. Edited by Jina Khayyer, Reza Shafahi, The Diary of a Gambler features a selection of art curated by Mamali and by Tony Cox, owner and founder of Club Rhubarb in New York City, where Reza had his first solo show in 2019.
