This print belongs to the series Lost in Wonderland, which records some of the street art of Tehran: murals painted on buildings and sponsored by the municipality in an attempt to enliven and revitalize certain neighborhoods. The images are meticulously constructed; note how the painted white bird is framed to appear as if it sits in the real tree branch. The re-created images are converted back into a new form of painting that plays with light and shadow as the everyday life of the city and its inhabitants interacts with the murals, at times making it difficult to distinguish between the original painted surface and reality. Amir Mousavi first trained as a painter then gravitated to photography. He has exhibited extensively in Iran and more recently in the United States. He has said of his Lost in Wonderland series, "From the beginning I loved surfaces, and the flattest of surfaces were walls, which for me have a life of their own."
