ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
Mitra Kamali's Artist Statement
As a visual story teller, it is my mission to embrace humanity, address environmental issues, advocate for social justice, equality, human rights and be the voice of the voiceless. I enjoy putting my creativity and engineering background into a variety of art form of artistic expressions. My paintings convey the shared emotions of human feelings that transcend prejudice of race, gender, social status, religion or any man made boundaries. I see a strong connection between art and science. Both require research, analysis, discipline and passion, a fearless journey in search of discovery. However, it is the ARTs that brings empathy, endearment and compassion in understanding the souls of human beings.”
A human dialogue through culture and art of fashion is a fun way to celebrate wearing styles that convey positive messages…”one becomes what one wears”. I keep interest in creating new artwork by developing techniques and examining a variety of materials and methodologies.
“One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art”
