About the Artist
I am Rezgar Mamandi and from a very small town, Rabat in the northwest of Kurdistan of Iran comes back to Manna an ancient civilization that dates back to the 7 to 10 centuries BC. I began painting as a child in my hometown. As Thomas Merton says: “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
Having been found artifacts at archaeological sites of this civilization in my hometown, My passion for ceramic painting art has grown stronger. Living in Turkey for about 4 years, my focus was on ceramics. I learned all the ceramic painting art techniques and since then I have continued to work on. Art has the power to touch you deep in your soul. It stirs the emotions and connects you with creativity and beauty. Art is available to us in everything we do, it is a creative way of being. Lives and works in Falls Church, VA.
