Mahsa Karimizadeh

Iranian artist Mahsa Karimizadeh (1980–) is a renowned and highly acclaimed artist. She has created a large range of works of art that include hard sculptures, soft sculptures, and paintings rich in captivating detail. She holds a fine art degree from Tehran University, where she studied sculpture, but even prior to enrolling she was already a skilled artist, drawing particular inspiration from Expressionism.

Unfinished perfection

While Mahsa Karimizadeh works with a diverse range of media and materials, she retains a distinctive style and aesthetic that always makes her works recognisably hers. Karimizadeh’s style is simple and often involves the use of dots, simple shapes, and simple lines. Her works may seem unfinished, yet at the same time give the impression of having been crafted to absolute perfection, creating a very interesting interplay of disparate traits.

A familiar face in the biennale

An award-winning artist, Karimizadeh has presented exhibitions in numerous exhibitions and won residencies in studios around Europe. She is a recurring figure at the Socle du Monde Biennale: her distinctive works also graced the 2017 biennale.
