ADVOCARTSY Nicky Nodjoumi

This is Nodjoumi’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, being held in conjunction with the Limited Theatrical Release of A Revolution on Canvas– an HBO documentary based on the artist’s life– in Los Angeles from December 8 – Dec 15, 2023 at the Royal Laemmle located at 11523 Santa Monica Blvd.

Exhibiting 12 iconic works on canvas, Nodjoumi’s body of work has addressed the relationship between politics and power since the 1960s. Revolutionary in both spirit and practice, Nodjoumi’s paintings have driven social and political discourse across continents for five decades. In 2020, The New York Times listed Nodjoumi’s artwork among the 25 most influential pieces of protest art since World War II, citing his ability to critique both Iranian and American politics through satirical, sinister scenes rendered in monumental oil paintings.


Launched in 2015, ADVOCARTSY is a leading contemporary art platform specializing in Iranian contemporary art. In 2021, ADVOCARTSY expanded its exhibition space to West Hollywood. Founded by lawyer-turned-art advocate Roshi Rahnama, ADVOCARTSY acts as an incubator for emerging and established Iranian artists based in Los Angeles as well as the larger diaspora. ADVOCARTSY aims to transcend borders and connect artists of Iranian origin to arts organizations, museums, foundations, and collectors in the United States and worldwide.
