Mohammad Barrangi Fashtami

Mohammad Barrangi Fashtami is an illustrator and printmaker originally from Iran and based in the UK.

Barrangi’s work combines elements of Persian calligraphy, storytelling, text, and touches of humour. Using a unique creative process, with handmade traditional calligraphy pens and a blend of mark-marking styles, Barrangi creates both small pieces and often expands these to large scale murals.

Alongside his artistic career Barrangi has gained recognition for his achievements as an athlete and Paralympian. He has represented Iran internationally in the 100m sprint.
