About the author:
Mahdi Tabatabaei Yazdi grew up in a family of devout Muslims. He was always encouraged to practice his faith and follow his passion as an artist. As a result, his early childhood was spent making drawings with meaningful stories and messages behind them. As his exposure to the wider world of art increased, he was faced with the reality that even in his religious society, art represented many aspects of human life – except religion. Therefore, as an artist inspired by Islam, he chose to communicate his faith through his artwork. “I believe art is a language that everyone appreciates despite what they believe. It is linked with the human instinct, and the human instinct is created by a divine power that is full of beauty.” – Mahdi Mahdi has a bachelor’s degree in architecture which reflects in his artwork.
After completing his formal education, he started out as an illustrator of short comics and soon thereafter, founded SalamComics. He works with a brilliant team of local illustrators producing exclusive products for his clients. Mahdi has devoted his life to building bridges between communities through the language of art.
