About

Originally Syrian, Aisha Mansouri lives in New York where she produces work inspired by the relationship of colors to each other, to the canvas, and to shapes and lines present in nature. 

 

Mansouri's abstract work draws on an interpretation of her environment based on geometric and organic shapes. Her rich, yet subtle use of color unifies her work and contributes an emotional vocabulary that ranges from energy and harmony, to anxiety and pain. Mansouri has been fortunate enough to work under nationally renowned artist Moe Brooker for many years, where she has drawn inspiration from his use of vivid colors and shapes. She has additionally been instructed by Jon Redmond, who has influenced her use of light and shapes.

Mansouri’s latest paintings of abstract figures evoke the physical and emotional devastation of Syria and the Syrians who have fled their homes due to the civil war.
