Mohammad Barrangi: Playing in Wonderland


Mohammad Barrangi: Playing in Wonderland

Attenborough Arts Centre is excited to be launching 'Playing in Wonderland,' a colourful and dynamic new exhibition by Mohammad Barrangi.

Come and experience Barrangi's imaginative world of fantastical characters and colourful scenery. Explore and be amazed by colour extending beyond the artworks. Be immersed in the vibrant yellows, reds and greens spilling into the space with geometric shapes climbing the walls and colours flowing onto the floor.

Gather around unique sculptures of mythical animals, creatures and characters which emerge from walls, plinths and other spaces. A fusion of modern and traditional, Barrangi's artworks are inspired by ancient Persian storytelling while utilising cutting-edge 3-D printing technology to create unique visual narratives.

Born without full mobility in his left arm, Mohammad developed an artistic practice which utilises his right hand and both feet to create his unique artworks. His work combines traditional calligraphy with more experimental mark making, combining elements such as Persian calligraphy, storytelling, and text with a touch of humour.
