Amir Shabanipour

We have loved discovering the work of Amir Shabanipour through the upcoming exhibition 'Birds Of A Feather' which has been put together by Dirt Lane Press and opens here this Friday at 6PM.

A painter and illustrator living in Rasht, Iran, Amir initially studied Graphic Design and we can see that strong graphic sensibility in all his works. He has a very unique approach to composition on the page and you can get lost in the architectural details and small figures that inhabit his wonderful complex designs and juxtaposed patterns.

Join us on Friday to see Amir's work up close in a range of stunning limited edition prints.

Hoda Hadadi

Illustrator, writer and poet Hoda Hadadi creates the most beautiful collages, balancing extraordinarily delicate materials and textures with a deft graphic compositional style. She layers gauze papers, stitches, pencil and paint to create images that have illustrated 50 books, published in Iran and around the world.

We are thrilled to have prints of her work included in "Birds Of A Feather - Illustrators of Iran", curated by Dirt Lane Press.

Join us 6PM Friday November 11 to launch the exhibition and take in more of this fine illustration.

Alireza Goldoozian

We are quite in love with the stylised, inky illustrations of Alireza Goldoozian. He is one of a collection of talented Iranian illustrators curated into the upcoming exhibition "Birds Of A Feather" by Dirt Lane Press.

Born in Tehran in 1976, Alireza has won many awards including the Grand Prix at the 2005 Biennale of Illustrations of Bratislava for his work illustrating for children and young adults.

The images below are taken from the book "So Much Noise" or "What A Racket", a tale by Sarvar Katbi about a soup-selling goat and a nagging tree! 

Join us Friday November 11 to launch "Birds Of A Feather" and explore more work from this wonderful artist, plus many more.
