Reza Abedini

What a good start to 2005 for Reza Abedini. he took a gold award in Hong Kong’s poster triennale, one of many poster events currently enlivening the graphic design scene in the far east (from tokyo to Pekin via Taipei), open to entries from visual cultures beyond the border (or, better said, borders). and entries come not only from the west, but also from the middle east – a territory that (supposedly global) ‘chat’ culture seems to show little inclination to get to know or understand more about.
