Mehrdad Shoghi is an artist based in Toronto, Canada. Born and raised in Tehran, he received a thorough classical training in Persian calligraphy and painting as well as in graphic design in Iran. Having exhibited in Europe, North America and the Middle East, Shoghi has also received several private and public commissions, from calligraphic murals in the Tehran metro to architectural tilework for Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said’s palace, the Bait al Baraka. It was, however, Bonham’s auction in Dubai in 2008, “Modern and Contemporary Arab, Iranian, Indian and Pakistani Art”, that truly internationalized his career. IAM caught up with Soghi to discuss his recent exhibit and work.
A new solo exhibition just opened at Montreal’s MEKIC gallery and so first please receive our congratulations. (for more information press this link )
