Today’s Poster Monday spot belongs to Ameneh Moayedi and her poster “Peace” Ameneh is a Iranian graphic designer living in Paris. She spent high school in the field of graphics in the south of Iran and continued the bachelor’s degree in the same field and worked for many years. In 2012, Ameneh moved to France for a master’s degree in visual communication.
“In graphic art, I like posters and I work mostly in this field. I also examine modern carpet designers and research on the role of women in carpet weaving and the influence of poetry on Iranian carpet patterns. Painting and drawing are my interests and I have had many exhibitions in this field. Usually my posters are minimal because I like simplicity in posters. Custom posters for movies, theater and music concerts. But I like non-commissioned posters whose subjects are social, cultural and political concerns. What concerns me the most is “humanity and love”. As we see in this poster, loving, loving people to each other and kindness…! It is free and we can communicate to each other even with a small smile. I always keep in mind the city of the great Persian poet who says:
“Human beings are body parts of each other,
In creation they are indeed of one essence.
If a body part is afflicted with pain,
Other body parts uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you shall not retain.”
We cannot be indifferent to the pain and problems of others, anywhere on earth. We are related to each other, we are connected to each other and I always believe in this and with my art I try to convey my message to all the people of the world that I love them and all people are important to me. The heart in this poster is a symbol of humanity and love, and the olive leaf is a symbol of “Peace”… the pink color speaks of feelings for me. I designed the poster in the simplest way. A heart that gives an olive branch and speaks of “Peace”. Of course, after the war in Ukraine, I changed the same poster with the background of the country’s flag (blue and yellow) to show my solidarity with the people of Ukraine and opposition to the war” tell us Ameneh.
