| Professional Life
Born in Shiraz, Iran in 1980, Mahsa Karimizadeh has been active as an artist since 2005. She graduated with a BA in sculpture from the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Tehran. Until now, she has been creating a wide body of works, ranging from sculptures to installations and paintings. Before university, she focused on the production of expressive portraits, but soon after, she decided to turn her attention and sensibility to sculpture. Her work covers a wide variety but remains simplistic and focused primarily on visual elements such as lines and dots. There is a subtle sense of contrast in her work that seems both unfinished and tuned to perfection. Karimizadeh won the second prize in the 5th Tehran Sculpture Biennial, for which she was awarded a two-month artist residency at the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris. Karimizadeh also participated in a one-year residency at “Lepsien Art Foundation” in Dusseldorf, Germany, where Zero foundation invited her to participate in the “Socle Du Monde” biennale 2017 at the Heart Museum, Denmark.
