Born in 1979, Tehran, Iran. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
Mirak Jamal studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto. His work has shown internationally, including a recent solo exhibition at Galerie Sultana, Paris, France, and at L’Ascensore, Palermo, Italy.
Jamal produces abstract emotional representations of a notion of ‘home’ in constant flux, particularly in incorporating his own drawings from his nomadic childhood between Iran, the USSR, Germany, the US, and Canada. These contrasting and often contradictory elements question the stability of the image and the significance of “place” as it circulates through different hands and contexts.
