Mandad's materials and techniques range from pigmented silicone, polyurethane foam rubber and shattered glass to digital collage and photography. As one art critic put it: "It's impossible to describe the eclecticism, irony, ritual and humor that permeate Mandad's work, but it's fun to try."
He continues to explore profundity, banality and humor,usually at the same time. Regarding the effect of his work on the viewer, Mandad likes to quote Emmanuel Kant's comment: "We feel a slackening of the body by the oscillation of the organs, which promotes the restoration of equilibrium and a has a favorable influence on health." : to be continued
