Reminiscent of the traditional motifs of Persian tapestries, architecture, fabrics, and carvings,
Ramin Haerizadeh’s work reconfigures the decadence of an ancient civilisation into lusciously futuristic tableaux.
Printed as large photographs, his computer manipulated imagery conveys all the sumptuous associations of history
within their super-slick modern surfaces.
Using these appropriated forms as departure point for invention,
Haerizadeh transforms tradition, myth, and legend into the realm of virtual reality,
subverting convention through high-impact graphic design and digital modelling.
