The works of the Iranian painter Mehran Elminia hover between abstraction and involuntary figuration, a huge variety of brushstrokes, form and its vivid palette. The artist often works for up to twenty hours continuously, never moving more than one meter from the canvas, and tries to reach an almost ecstatic state in which he can totally lose himself in the act of painting.
Mehran Elminia was born in 1975 in Tabriz, Iran, holds a degreea master's degree in art from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and currently lives and works in Tehran, Rome and London. Elminia has exhibited in various galleries and art fairs in Italy, including the Rome International Art Fair, the Milan International Art Fair and has held solo exhibitions in Iran. You have also contributed to group exhibitions in Dubai and Rome.
