Mahdieh Abolhasan


Mahdieh Abolhasan is an Iranian artist.

Mahdieh was born in 1980 in Tehran, Iran. And she also began painting and sculpting as a child by attending courses at Kanoon. She is a member of the renowned Iranian artist, Farhad Gavzan’s Drawing House. Her works range from sculpture to performance. And she also works on graphic design for several art magazines and art books.


Mahdieh Abolhasan creates works primarily by incorporating a special paper. Which is handmade by the artist herself. Striking gleams of mirrored glass interrupt layers of this paper. Each installation invites the viewer to peer into an isolated space, where they find yet another dimension into the artwork that would have remained unrevealed otherwise. Some layers are made by creation and others by destruction, resulting in a cross of drawing and sculpture.
