Mahsa Biography: Born in Tehran capital of Iran in 1981 and started painting when I was 10 years old and for two years painted with oil and use realist style. After I finished my school education, I decided to go to Art University and finish Academic Education at the age of 22. When I came into the art world, I was so confused with all the styles that existed. After 3 years, I recognized that I am a modern artist and I love more unreal/abstract paintings. From 3 years ago, I painted cubism, expressionism and abstract style, with full of sharp colors. A year ago, I limited my colors and just start to paint the deformation face with more doll colors and added some sharp color to it. I had held a couple of galleries since 2004 and Three (3) in 2009 By now, I have too many new ideas and just with my canvas and my brush I can talk to everyone around the world. It’s my international language. When I paint, I am in another world and when I finish it, I feel I great part of something alive that can talk to earth. For now, I prefer the acrylic for my painting because firstly I love it and I can touch my feeling easier and secondly oil color. This is my passion, my wish, my love I want to share with people.
