Jahanguir a Swiss-Iranian artist has an inherent interest in Persian design.  He learnt how to combine this love of design with technical drawing while he was serving his apprenticeship as a mechanical engineer.

As you can see by his paintings and sculptures in this show his works have a precise beauty formed through a combination of ornament, design and metalwork. His sophisticated style is embodied in his exploration between positive and negative space.

His abstract sculpture at first view may be taken as machine-made but closer inspection shows that they are hand-crafted with a precise technical skill that reflects his great artistic talent.
