Monireh Interview
(in French)

 

 

Monireh was born in Tehran (Iran). She started painting at the age of 15. When she was 20, she joined the PETGAR-Djafar Studio where she worked for several years.
She moved to Paris in 1976 and started painting on porcelain in 1980 at the Atelier A.D.A.C. in Paris.
After a learning period and some years of working around Western themes and subjects, she directed her focus on a deep study of Persian Art, discovering an extremely interesting, particularly rich, thousand-year-old heritage.
Since then, she has always tried to create figures that are inspirations of original works.
On most of her paintings, you can find birds; She says:

“ Birds are the best symbols of freedom. ”


She has participated in several exhibitions and held conferences, namely in Paris at the Association Culture Libre about the History of Persian Ceramic, which was then published in Rahavard magazine in the US.

“ How can one be insensitive to a child's beautiful smile ?
How can one smell a perfume of love and friendship and remain untouched ?
How can one be indifferent, when one sees young people risk their life for freedom and justice ?
What can I possibly do?
Nothing that is immediately useful. I dive in an absolute silence, and with my brushes and colors, I pour my cries of joy and sadness on my porcelains.
