Wonderland by Mohammad Barrangi (exhibition)

About this activity

Can be seen at Unit 2, Piazza Shopping Centre, Huddersfield on Thursday to Saturday from 10.30am to 3pm and by appointment.

West Yorkshire Print Workshop is delighted to present the work of Mohammad Barrangi, illustrator, print-maker and para-athlete. Originally from Iran, Mohammad currently lives in West Yorkshire, working from his studio base at The Art House in Wakefield. Alongside his artistic career Mohammad has gained recognition for his achievements as an athlete. He has represented Iran internationally in the 100m sprint.

For our exhibition space in Huddersfield (Unit 2 Piazza Shopping Centre), Mohammad has created three beautiful large scale wall pieces depicting flora and fauna overlaid with prints on paper and alluding to themes of migration. Hybrid bird-humans dance along the walls. A menagerie of familiar and fantastical beasts float across imaginary landscapes. We glimpse the face of Fawzia Faud of Egypt and other women, including the artist’s mother. This otherworldly body of work is inspired by ancient Persian scholars as well as the Persian Epic The Conference of the Birds by Attar of Nishapur, filtered through the creative skill and imagination of the artist.
