Mina Mohseni studied Graphic Design at high school. She pursued her studies in Painting at Soure University, from which she received her Bachelor’s degree, and afterward, she earned her Master’s degree in Painting from the Isfahan University of Art in 2011. She is the co-founder of Daraprints collective since 2009.

Her medium of choice is usually painting/drawing, but she has incorporated different media and techniques into her practice to correspond with the concepts of her works, e.g. video animation, lightbox, sewing on paper, and screen printing. In her most recent works, she had made use of diverse industrial materials and machines to better express the ideas behind her artworks.

The concepts of her artistic practice embody the question of the opposition of potential and vulnerability of humankind as opposed to its surrounding. they are mainly informed by myths and historical narratives, nature, morality, resistance, the Sisyphean state of the world.

 Mina has held six solo exhibitions and her works have been included in more than 20 group exhibitions in Iran, Kuwait, England, Turkey, and Lithuania. At present, she is working in her studio in downtown Tehran, preparing the new project for her upcoming solo exhibition.
