Born and raised in Iran and now based in Toronto, Mahassa has been painting for 26 years. She studied painting, and theory and history of art under the guidance of renowned artist, Gholamhossein Nami, and was exposed to new and exciting ideas which gradually helped her form her abstract art.
She has had 3 solo and 5 group exhibitions.
My love for abstract art of any form, nourishes my soul daily. Be it a painting, a sculpture, or even an accidental artistic composition on the street, the colour, texture, and rhythm of my environment inspire me. It is my fascination with abstract scenes all around me that I wish to convey to my audience by eliciting those emotions from light, texture, and rhythm. Sometimes calm and quiet, sometimes happy and noisy, sometimes confused and sometimes organized. They’re all me.
