To end these final moments of 2020 on a positive note, Saradipour Art Gallery is pleased to announce Mahdieh Abolhasan as the winner of Khor Art Initiative 2020.
Mahdieh Abolhasan (b. 1980) is a graphic designer and visual artist. She began her drawing training with Iranian drawing artist Farhad Gavzan, and her creations are combinations of manipulating surfaces and volumes of various media with a drawing-oriented approach. Abolhasan’s works were particularly praised by her nominating juror Katie Grinnan for their layered topographic and historic aspects and the “dynamic nature of the layers” which allowed for shifting forms and structures, creating a complex narrative. Mahdieh also engages in performance art and land art.
