Mohammad Tabesh (he/him) is a mixed-media artist residing and working in Toronto. His practice is focused on the human condition, the art of resistance, art and social change. Through writing, printmaking, multimedia and sculpture, Tabesh strives to convey these stories in a profoundly human and universal language, avoiding the cliché of shock and horrors of violence on the one hand and the abstract notion of war far away on the other. His ceramic work, including sculptural forms and sound installations, focuses on themes of body and censorship.
Tabesh completed his BFA at OCAD University and is the 2020 recipient of OCAD University’s Sculpture and Installation medal. He was accepted as an Artist-in-Residence for ceramics at Harbourfront Centre in 2022.
