MURAL IN 'THE MALL', HEIDELBERG WEST

The other day, we found a lovely mural in Heidelberg West in "The Mall". It is a design of polo players that is very much reminiscent of Persian miniatures found in manuscript books. The artist is Ronak Taher, an Iranian-Australian.

This is the artist's bio from her website:
"Ronak Taher is an Iranian-Australian artist born in 1984. She finished her bachelor of Graphic Design at the University of Tehran, also holds a Master of Illustration and Animation from the Azad University of Tehran.

In 2013 she was celebrated as one of the 300 upcoming world talents in film industry at the “Berlin Film Festival”. Her last animation was screened at the Montreal World Film Festival 2011, Chicago World Film Festival 2011, Shnit World Film Festival 2011 in Switzerland, South Africa, Germany, Austria, Costa Rica and Singapore, Florida International Film Festival 2012 to name a few.

Ronak also works in the fields of graphic design, illustration and sculpture. She has had over 6 solo and group visual art exhibitions and has illustrated more than 8 books for children and young adults. Her latest book “The Conference Of The Birds” will be published in France in 2014."
