About the Live Installation

See illustrator, artist, and athlete Mohammad Barrangi share an important aspect of his artistic practice through a live demonstration of the reverse print transfer process that has become a signature aspect of his work. The artist will spend three days going methodically through the steps he takes to produce large-scale works such as Migration (2018), acquired by the Museum in 2021, on this occasion conceiving a diptych inspired by Iranian history and visual traditions.

This program is an Art + Empathy event organized by The San Diego Museum of Art and supported by cultural partnerships with Farhang Foundation in Los Angeles and the Persian Cultural Center in San Diego.

Artist Biography

Mohammad Barrangi was born in Rasht, Iran, in 1988. Now based in the UK, he is both a globally recognized artist and a medal-winning athlete who has represented Iran internationally in the 100m sprint. Born without full mobility in his left arm, Barrangi has developed a unique artistic practice that utilizes his right hand and both feet to create his distinctive works. Blending traditional calligraphy with experimental mark-making techniques, Barrangi combines elements of Persian calligraphy, storytelling, text, and touches of humor to create intimate works on handmade paper that are selectively expanded into large-scale murals.

Barrangi holds a degree in graphic design from the Islamic Azad University of Tonekabon and recently graduated from the Royal Drawing School in London. Barrangi has extensively exhibited his work around the world, winning numerous awards and recognition that has led to the prolific publication of his illustrations in a variety of books. His works have been acquired by the permanent collections of the British Museum, the Royal Family Collection, the National Government Collection in the UK, the San Diego Museum of Art in the USA, as well as the Cluj Napoka Art Museum in Romania.  In addition, LACMA has selected two of Barrangi’s works on paper for their permanent collection.
