The artist: Pedram Harby, Tehran, Iran
Pedram Harby‘s work is very minimal. He’s inspired by song lyrics and works a lot with Persian typography, often using lines of type as part of the drawing. As a nod to his Islamic heritage, he often blurs representative images.
My Interpretation: cats
I take a lot of pictures of my cats, Henry and Joseph, so it was just a matter of time until one ended up in these posters. I’m surprised I made it a whole week. I liked the idea of blurred photographs combined with a mixed text line drawing and I felt this picture of the cats in the tree lent itself well.
The text might be familiar to you from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, but it goes back much further than that.
