Mohammad Barrangi Fashtami was born at Rasht, a northern city of Iran. He started drawing and illustrating at 13 years old and pursued a career in the art field. He loves using printmaking techniques. His art also includes the production of large murals of his drawings through a process of laser printing and solvent transfer onto wooden walls. His drawings are influenced by traditional Persian illustration techniques, combined with contemporary methods of collage and street art. Mohammad is interested in creating characters that have disabilities, often combining human and animal features to create a dream-like scenario in which bodies are weird, different, and beautiful. He is also influenced by his upbringing in the Middle East. The colors used in his artworks are inspired by old tiles and Persian rugs. Mohammad uses symbols and signs coming from Iranian believes and eastern people. This is what Mohammad says about his art: “I create images that come from my soul and feelings in which I show part of my homeland. I also use Persian calligraphy and alphabetic shapes as the main components in my work. These elements are something like poetry for me.  I try to invite the audience to visit Iran by looking at my artwork and getting familiar with my process of thinking. I hope I am being able to convey a little bit of this with my art.”

About Sandra: "I'm a lover of all things artsy, a blogger on and a potter at The Pottery Parade. Here you will find a selection of ceramics which I create from a lovely Utrecht based studio called Noot & Zo.

Sandra Aperloo is the creator of the "all things artsy" blog Artistic Moods. On her blog, she curates beautiful artistic objects and illustrations. Explore Sandra's curating edition for Toi.

This is what Sandra says:

I've been in love with illustration for as long as I can remember. But I've always found it a bit hard to describe my style. Usually I will go with words like playful, fun, romantic and maybe a tad surreal. But I can also appreciate art that gives me quietness and comfort. Especially when I'm selecting art for walls, I like to go for creations that will give sweet comfort at home after a long day of work.
I guess the most magical moment for me is when I find illustrations that have all those things. Beautiful, playful imagery that makes me drift off to lala land and gives me piece of mind at the same time. That's when I really fall in love with art.
For me, the pieces I have curated in this selection have those elements. Claudia Legnazzi's Three Sisters has so may precious details to look at. The soft colors in her work give it a very delightful and comforting character. The colors in City and Forest by Roger Ycaza will pop out on any wall but the trees, houses and other figures are very harmonious at the same time. My favorite pick is Elaheh Taherian's Sleepwalker. Love the quirky figures of that lady! It's #1 on my Christmas wishlist.

Stephen Ellcock is a downwardly mobile, London-based writer, editor, serial underachiever, researcher and image wrangler for hire.

This is what he told us about his curated edition:

"My selection reflects what is, (personal relationships aside), my greatest and most abiding obsession, namely the glory,  strangeness and infinite variety of the natural world and the welfare of our fellow creatures. I hope that, in addition to capturing something of the beauty, exuberance , singularity and sadness of life on our home planet , they also provide a glimpse of the mystery and the mischief at the heart of things." 

As Milan Kundera said: "Humanity's true moral test, its fundamental test, consists of its attitude toward those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect, human kind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it." The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Studio Morran started in 2011 by the artist Camilla Engman. The physical home of the studio is in Gothenburg, Sweden. Much of the inspiration is found in nature, so long walk is essential. The working process itself and the urge to tell a story are very important at Studio Morran, you will always find a story in the work, either easy to find or hidden, but it will be there. Studio Morran was created as an answer to Camilla’s need for a place to excess in cuteness, when fine art took over more and more of her time and work. An effort to separate the two lines to make it more clear, both for herself and others. Studio Morran is still trying to find its true voice, it is a place that is still in the process of forming itself. So in that sense it still feels new. Studio Morran wants to be a place open to most materials and ways of expression: animation, illustration, clay, collage and so on. There is also a a desire for openness to different kinds of collaborations and cooperations. Studio Morran’s goal and struggle is to be a creative and happy place with a big heart.
