Mina Hosseini: The Creation of Truth

Mina, thank you for taking the time to talk about your artworks and art career. Tell us about your artistic background story and if there was a pivotal moment when you decided to follow your path as a visual artist.

At the age of 8, I realized that I was very excited and interested in the days when we were studying art. This feeling first came to me when I looked at my classmate who was painting a picture printed on a crayon box in art class. That was a very deep and wide sense of joy that arose in my mind, and I was subconsciously drawn to art.

What happens in a child's mind about art plays a very important role in the future artistic personality of the artist. Was there ever a moment of doubt to question your art career entirely?

Not really - I may have felt weak and helpless at times, but it was fleeting and cursory, and I tried harder each time.

That's true. Amid these doubts, it is important to be able to overcome the situation and continue the journey. What is your daily routine when working in your studio?

I usually work from 10 am to 5 pm and spend the night watching paintings and reading, although this current lock and quarantine has greatly aggravated this.

❝To escape from the truth that is bitter, to relieve of worries that undoubtedly arise in every artist or human being's mind, I paint.❞

Yes. Despite its limitations, this lockdown has provided more time for work. Now, take us through the process of making your artworks. How do you move from an idea to an artwork? Where does an artwork begin for you?

A deep look and attention to the social, political, and moral events in society and around our personal life are pictured in my mind in the form of an image and created my idea. Also, paying attention, focusing, and interfering with personal feelings and expressing them through lines, shapes, and colors can create pleasure in me and finally turned into an artwork.

Great job. The artist's accurate look and feeling directly illuminate the art path and guide the artwork process. Is there a central concept connecting all your works together or each series or artwork is unique?

Yes. I think they are in the same direction. Because the issues such as being caught between do's and don’ts, the extreme and fanatical atmosphere and the imposition of beliefs on children, confused people in today's world, fighting and insisting on blindly thoughts and attitudes, have made my mind involved since I was a child. They are my biggest concerns in today's society.

Oftentimes, inspiration defines as an unconscious burst of creativity in artistic endeavors. How do you seek and use inspiration for your works?

By reading philosophical books, poetry and deep films, and great artists’ paintings.

Concerning some influences remain strong motivational factors in an artist’s thinking. What are your rtistic influences? Who are your favorite contemporary or historical artists and why?

Inspired by great artists like Rembrandt, Michelangelo, and Carvajal and contemporary artists like Salvador Dali

Mina, let's travel to distant times! If you could meet one of your ideal artists from the past, who would it be and what will you ask about?

Picasso is the artist I’d like to meet and ask him what his horizons are and how he got ideas from different influences and found this exceptional capability, as well.

Now let's go to the future! Any upcoming works or future projects you would like to share with our readers?

Yes, my next project is about reincarnation, which I’d like to work on.

I appreciate your time about this interview. Thanks for sharing your artistic story with our readers. I wish you success and hope you always shine, Mina.

This interview ends here. We hope that you enjoyed reading this inspiring interview with Joseph. If you want to ask your own questions, please put a comment or write to us by email.
