Farbod Mehr's work delves into the rich history of geometry, architecture, and art in Iran, where these elements have been masterfully employed to convey mystical meanings and emotions. In Iranian art and architecture, the essence of beauty is found in harmony and balance, with geometry and proportions serving as the foundation. Mehr draws a parallel between Iranian/Islamic art and the avant-garde Suprematism movement, which emerged in Russia in 1913. The Suprematist style revolves around abstract, systematic compositions, utilizing geometric shapes and colors to express pure emotions, mysticism, and depth. This intersection of Iranian geometric and mystical art with Russian Suprematism births the concept of Persian Suprematism.
