Momayez

When I was 5 I met him once. That day my uncle had to baby-sit me and he had classes so he took me with him. My uncle M.M. was one of his students in Tehran University, Fine Arts, Graphic design Dept.

Morteza Momayes passed away. I had the chance to be at his presence. I never forget that day: he asked me to draw an Elephant, to keep me quiet of course. But I hadn’t seen an elephant before and he drew me one. Now I know what is the power of Imagination and how precious is Reality.

Iran’s Graphic Art is going to miss Momayez greatly. His works and influences are long lasting.
