Mahnaz Karimi is a modern and contemporary Iranian artist with two decades of successful experience in painting. She specializes in Fluid Art, Resin Art, Acrylic Painting and Glass Painting. As a creative artist, her methods are unorthodox.
Inspired by an intense love for the sky, galaxy, clouds and the sea, she would like to give the viewer a glimpse of nature. She attempts to make various art works from spectacular Geode resin art and Mixed Media collages to resin art wall décor, bowls and platters of resin and serving trays.
She was born in 1984 in Tehran. Her interest to art was cultivated during her teenage years and further developed when she opted to take her Bachelor’s degree in Graphics from Alzahra University in Tehran, Iran. She has mastered the skills and chemistry of her medium, to further develop the process and expand its boundaries. In addition to her thirteen-year experience of glass painting (Vitray), she has been a professional abstract resin artist for six years.
Mahnaz Karimi has received the Bronze A’ design award 2020 in Arts, Crafts and Ready-made Design Category in 2019-2020 period with her wall art design “Dandelion and Wishes”. She has been teaching the art of acrylic painting and resin since 2016. She has conducted several art workshops in most cities of Iran, including; Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz, Tabriz, etc. and has about 400 students annually.
Her artworks are primarily based upon pouring which means applying the paint by pouring rather than applying the paint with a brush. This sense of fluidity along with the unpredictable nature of resin gives her the opportunity to explore varied textures found in nature more realistically than any other medium. Art is her first means of expressing feelings, to show other aspects of nature and realities of life to the viewers, to highlight the beauties and ease the griefs and hardships. Design is the artist's perspective toward special subjects and objects.
