Mohamad Bozorgi was born in Tehran in 1978
He simultaneously earned degrees in Medical Engineering and Calligraphy. He practiced with the Society of Iranian calligraphers for 15 years and achieved the Excellent level. His regular practice of repetition or Siah Mashg, helped him garner the skill that he currently demonstrates in this new body of work. In his practice the artist uses harmonic elegant movements of dancing curves creating beautiful repetitions that have come to be known as an independent calligraphy form in their own right.
In order to arrive at this practice he did learn 18 different classical writing forms of calligraphy (divani-kufi-nastalique-sols-broken nastaliq-Mohaggegh ghobare-laghe just to name few). In recent years he has used this age old practice of calligraphy to navigate his own constructions allowing him to create his own language in a very contemporary format.
Bozorgi views his paintings as a unique style that has derivative roots in more classical calligraphy. Although the writing that he has invented has Arab and Persian roots his main focus is on a more architectural approach. The mathematical structure and symmetry of the letters is a series he calls "crying".
The artist painstakingly writes by hand, with no technological influences, creating optical illusions that utilize quantitative analysis. These quantitative calculations help him create a very pure but abstract technique. His intention for creating geometric shapes, using angles and repetition although inspired by a classical style are metaphors for a dance and spiritual liberation allowing him to arrive at his own artistic path.
The artist often uses oil, ink and acrylic in his compositions. The artists works have been presented in Iran, Germany and Malaysia.
