Born in Karaj, Iran in 1987, Mirmohammad Fattahi obtained a diploma in painting from the School of Fine Arts in Iran, followed by
a BA in painting from Soore Art University of Tehran. During that time, he had already started developing his career as a background
artist for several magazines, companies and publishers. He later created books for the “Iran Language Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults”. Using pastel, watercolour and oil, Fattahi focuses a great deal on the depiction of animals. If it weren’t for its painterly vibrance, the realism of the artist’s work could be categorised as scientific illustrations.
