The acting president of Islamic Azad University has stated that the University of Iranian-Islamic Art named after the master of Persian miniature Mahmud Farshchian must be the source of fundamental development in higher education.

According to an ISCA report, during the opening ceremony of the University of Iranian-Islamic Art, Dr. Mohammad Mehdi Tehranchi spoke of the number of Iranian artists, the same as master Farshchian, and explained that the university aims to grow notable artists in future.

He noted that as the universities began their activities, they aimed at teaching new sciences as well as religious education, but unfortunately, due to the lack of higher education in the field of art, Western art has been introduced as the modern art.

As he said, before Islamic Revolution, universities following the methods of Western universities but after the victory of the Islamic Revolution, the Supreme Leader valued the universities more than before, so they have begun their activities to be the science and knowledge flag bearer.

The head of University of Iranian-Islamic Art, Dr. Bahman Namvar Motlagh also stated that wisdom, knowledge, creativity and skill are four notable elements that can be seen in Farshchian master pieces.

As he noted, Iranian arts, especially native arts had lost their positions for a long time but as everyone knows, Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences is the first university in the world, established way back in 200 B.C. in Iran.

Dr. Namvar emphasized that the country's noble arts, like painting and handicrafts, must not be on the sideline and that was the reason of creating the University of Iranian-Islamic Art, which aimed at creating native and modern text based on the genuine Iranian-Islamic experiences.

In this ceremony, the minister of Science, Research and Technology, Dr. Mansour Gholami also supported the methods and activities of this university and noted that the university will be supported in various areas in order to be developed in near future.
