An Iranian graphic designer has won an award at the Eighth International Triennial of Stage Posters in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Mehdi Fatehi, 34, one of the five Iranian graphic designers competing in the event, received the Prize for Young Author (not older than 35), a bronze plaque for overall performance, Mehr News Agency reported.
The first designer from Iran to win an award in the Bulgarian event, Fatehi got the prize for four posters he had designed for plays earlier staged in Iran including 'A Behanding in Spokane', (a 2010 black comedy by award-winning Irish playwright Martin McDonagh), 'The Killer', 'A Trio Without Harmony' and 'Sur-e-Esrafil'.
Born in Tehran, Fatehi holds a master's degree in graphic design from Azad Art and Architecture University. He has attended several group exhibitions and biennials in Iran, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia and Japan and won awards including a bronze prize in the 10th International Poster Triennial, Toyama, Japan, 2012, and the 2nd prize in the 31st International Fajr Theater Posters Festival, Tehran, in 2012.
The aim of the triennial in Bulgaria is to present the most noteworthy achievements of artists from around the world, working in the field of posters associated with all classic, contemporary or experimental performing arts: theater, opera, ballet, operetta, circus, pantomime, concert, festival and many more.
