Narjes Mohammadi Hasmik Illustrator

About Artist

Narjes Mohammadi is a visual artist and author working in animation, bookmaking and illustration.
Storytelling and attending to details are underlying themes throughout Narjes’s practice as an artist and storyteller. Having attention to finding a specific visual style in her illustrations/ animations by mixing 2d-3d techniques gives her a way to express herself and warm the soul of someone, inspire them or just cheer them up. She tries to illuminate things that she believes in and that she finds important to communicate to the rest of the world.
Her specific interests are nature and children. Usually, an adventure in nature or hanging out with children turns into an unforgettable story. Narjes’ engagements and practice are truly international in scope. Her critically acclaimed picture books have been translated into several languages and sold over thousands of copies worldwide. Her book (What a brilliant idea!) for example was selected and awarded at several illustration festivals. It was also selected as one of the best books by the Victoria Government in Australia in 2021. Her animation, Hi! Has been selected for a couple of festivals around the world. It was awarded a special mention in the Dutch category at the Kaboom animation festival.
Her original artworks are also exhibited at such galleries as Erranet in Spain, illustrade festival, Germany, and ESIGN KOREA Korean Power, Seoul.
