Mahmoud Hamadani
Born in Iran in 1958, Mahmoud Hamadani is known for his delicate monochromatic ink
drawings. Hamadani’s work is inspired by his desire to explore the space at the intersection
between art and life, focusing on depicting intangibleconcepts such as the attainment of peace
and enlightenment.
In his latest exhibition, Repetitions and Variations, Hamadani’s work takes on another aspect,
that of the musical score. Inspired by the rhythm and movements of music, specifically the works
of Johann Sebastian Bach, his drawings feature rhythmic patterns set within a simple structure.
According to the artist, without freedom, art cannot thrive, but without structure, no system is
