Mahsa Nouri (b. 1991, Tehran, Iran) received her BFA in Painting from the Tehran University of Art. Her works have been exhibited in several festivals and group shows.
In the midst of the city in which I have been living for years, I chose to paint one neighborhood that I later realized is overlooking a certain place: an old prison that affected its surrounding area. It changed my mentality and the way I looked at that area and consequently influenced my paintings. The “Rajaee Shahr” series is an attempt to understand and represent the district I am living in.
