Salehi Irene Monique
I was born in Paris, France and currently live in Toronto Canada. I modernized silk painting by using large number of closed lines and vivid colours for each painting. Nature, social issues or personal memories drive the meaning behind each and every creation. Sometimes, with deep understanding of a subject, I paint in metaphorical figurative expressions. Other times, I find myself expressing my accumulated emotions in the form of an abstract creation. I have received several awards including, most recently, the prestigious Marty’s Award in Established Visual Arts category in 2014.
