Masoumeh Abiri

MMA1-07 Bazaar dhs 6500 Acrylic on Canvas 80x80 cmsIranian born Masoumeh’s work exudes colour and a strong sense of design. Her observations of the patterns and forms found in Middle Eastern architecture are given a new life as she takes liberties with scale and detail. The juxtaposition of varied elements in hues sometimes vivid sometimes subtle have an element of pageantry, standard bearers for a modern age. The fact that she has received no formal training enhances her works unique sense of fun youth and optimism. Masoumeh works alongside her husband Morteza Darehbaghi in Tehran where as a couple they are a pivotal part of Iran’s cultural community.
