PrizeHonorable Mention in Painting
ArtistMohsen Modiri

Artists have always expressed the sufferings of humanity throughout history, whereas art is also capable of contributing to humanity’s awakening and freedom from pain and suffering. Since 2017, I have been focusing my attention on the subjects of humanity, moral values, and emotional qualities of humans. Old ideals of the mankind such as unity, solidarity, altruism, seeking freedom, sincerity and empathy, righteousness and honesty, absence of violence and peace and so on are the theme of new collections entitled “self devotion” and "a World that is my Dream".

Mohsen Modiri, Iranian born artist was born in 1950 in an artistic family. He has been involved in visual arts, music, and literature since adolescence.

He is also the organizer of visual arts and photo Exhibitions for artists in universities and has been an active professional caricaturist and graphic designer.
