Mohammad Kazemzadeh è un giovane artista iraniano nato il 31 gennaio 1992. In quel giorno avrebbe dovuto nascere insieme ad un fratello gemello, ma sfortunatamente i medici sono riusciti a salvare solo lui.
Gli anni di scuola primaria resero evidenti alcuni problemi di disabilità di Mohammad, il quale iniziò a seguire, nel medesimo periodo, una terapia dedicata al comportamento e al dialogo sotto la supervisione di alcuni specialisti. All’età di 6 anni fu miracolosamente salvato dai medici per via di una meningite: i vari problemi di salute lo costrinsero quindi a seguire un differente programma scolastico al posto di quello canonico. Nello stesso anno subì un intervento al cuore e dovette intraprendere una particolare cura per evitare l’ostruzione dei polmoni. A 14 anni i suoi lunghi periodi in ospedale non diminuirono a causa di alcuni problemi causati alla spina dorsale. Dopo le scuole medie, Mohammad iniziò la sua attività artistica, sostenuto in ciò dai suoi genitori.

Mohammad Kazemzadeh is a young iranian artist born on January 31, 1992. He should have been born with a twin, but doctors could only bring him to this world.
Early childhood years prior to primary school, made Mohammad’s disabilities apparent and he began speech and behavior therapy under the supervision of specialists. At the age of 6, he was miraculously saved by doctor from Meningitis. He was forced to enter the special children’s program as experts did not deem him fit to study at the regular program. Later that year, he was had a heart operation and was kept at the special care until due to the obstruction in his lungs. At 14, his extensive stays at the hospital continued as he was operated on due to issues caused by the twist in his spine. After the Middle school he began his artistic activities with the support of his parents.

La sua vita artistica incominciò a tutti gli effetti nel 2009, sotto l’osservazione della sua maestra, Maryam Taherianfar, alla quale rivelò le sue innate doti artistiche ed il suo mondo bizzarro. Ora dipinge, scolpisce e suona il piano, sotto la guida dei suoi maestri.
Mohammad si sente libero di utilizzare differenti materiali: i suoi lavori, spesso caratterizzati da colori vibranti e vivaci, sono realizzati con differenti strumenti, come pennarelli, pastelli, matite colorate e penne. Non ha un soggetto specifico, ragione per cui lavora ogni giorno su differenti figure, come elementi naturali o dettagli tratti dalla sua vita quotidiana. Disegna fiori, forme antropomorfe riconoscibili attraverso profondi occhi e altri soggetti, grazie alla sua specifica, ma sempre differente visione.

His artistic life began in 2009 under the observation of his teacher, Maryam Taherianfar: he gradually revealed his innate artistic talent and his odd world. He is currently practicing painting, sculpture and plays the piano under the instruction of his teachers.
Mohammad feels free to use different materials: his paintings, often characterized by vibrant colors, are realized with different tools like markers, pastels, pencil colors and pens. He doesn’t have a specific subject and everyday he works with different characters, like elements of nature or details of his lifestyle. He draws flowers, anthropomorphic figures recognizable through deep eyes and other figures with his specific but always different vision.
