From Shahnameh Series | The Scattered Cavalries

Mani Mehrzad

Painting is my core concentration.  My practices in book illustration, studying graphic design and restoration of the historical structures, literature, and living in two different cities that are in stark contrast in many ways have become my muse.

My new paintings are a manifestation of the contradictions that I live in. Unlike my previous canvases that evince tranquility, my recent works indicate agitation verses peace, silence verses chaos, tension verses repose, and light verses darkness. My intention is to persuade ultimate hope and serenity that is the essence of life. For me, hope is a miracle to persuade liberation, betterment and peace. http://artsmani.com/en/
