Mehnoush Modonpour is an Iranian/Canadian artist with a passion for painting and sculpture.
She found her passion at the age of 10 while drawing in the classroom. In 1984, she moved to Paris to begin her post-secondary education in art and design. In 1987, she graduated in fashion design from “Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne”. She continued her art education in drawing and painting with the famous and contemporary artist, Parvaneh Etemadi in Tehran, Iran, and later she continued the visual art at the Central Technical School in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Her artwork is influenced by her spirituality and human connectivity. She has gained insight into the meaning of human existence in a mysterious universe through her personal experiences. She uses inner-spiritual experiences as inspiration for her artwork. Some of her earlier artwork was influenced by nature (and its multiple manifestations) and also by ancient and symbolic designs and impressions.
Mehnoush had had solo and group exhibitions in Tehran, Guelph, Burlington & Toronto in the past 20 years.
She recently moved to Paris, France to continue with great passion and an enthusiasm, her journey of learning, experiencing, and growing in the Visual Arts.
