Mirak Jamal was born in 1979 in Tehran (Iran) and has formerly lived in the USSR, Germany, U.S.A., and Canada. He’s currently living and working in Berlin, Germany.
There is definitely something related to story (and stories) in Mirak Jamal’s art. Personal history is incorporated in a temporality made up of multitudes of stories which men have successively drawn in the matter in order not to forget.
It’s in building materials that Mirak Jamal has found his favorite matter. He writes stories, pictures, reminiscences of a past of wandering after his family fled Iran at the dawn of the revolution.
