“Honar” means art in Persian, “ist” is the noun suffix in English and “a” is an informal suffix in Persian turning nouns into plural form. Together they form Honarista which defamiliarizes the word “artists” in the Iranian mind but has the same meaning, artists! Honarista aims to be the leading space for handmade and fine arts in Iran.
