I grafici

IRIman Raad è nato nel 1979 a Mashad. Dal 2004 vive e lavora a Tehran. Dal 2007 insegna grafica all’Università Amir Kabir.

I suoi lavori  sono ispirati dalle arti tradizionali persiane, come la calligrafia, la ceramica o la tessitura. Iman considera la “rivisitazione del passato” un atto di  creazione artistica.

È membro dell’Iranian Graphic Designers Society (IGDS).  Le sue opere sono state pubblicate in numerosi volumi e riviste, tra cui  Area 2 (Phaidon) e Young Asian graphic Designers (DAAB).  Nel 2007 ha vinto il premio IGDS della 9th Tehran International Poster Biennial.
