Mona Karimi, my artistic name is Monami. I am an artist from
Iran. My arts are inspired by the lush pristine nature of the native Caspian Sea coastal region. I developed my aesthetic approach to art with the belief that nature is the ultimate artist. The inevitable corollary is that harmony with nature must preserve the environment, not harm it.
I mixed the colors in lucid crystalline resin with my soul, mind, and heart to reflect a part of God’s masterpiece and to create an artifact.
