Interview with Mitra Mohebbi at Thursday 19th of May 2022

FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
MM: I have been passionate about drawing, painting and music since I was a child, so I took art classes and always had a great desire to learn. I continued this path until I was able to become a first level instructor of a technical and professional organization in the field of design and painting in Iran and I have ten years of teaching experience. Also, in the field of music, I am an Iranian setar player. Art is the flow of life for me An artist has a strong and aesthetic vision because he looks at the world around him with finesse and detail; the world is an open book for the artist; the artist has a gentle and calm spirit, because the miracle of art penetrates his heart and makes him a better human being. It has been a year since I started to design in the field of industrial design and architecture, and in this short opportunity I was able to win two prestigious international competitions, as well as a top design nominee from Germany and Canada, and a green design nominee from Berlin, Germany. And finalist for the best architectural design. Teamwork is always a priority for me; teamwork is energizing; it feels great when people with different tastes try to achieve group goals and celebrate their success together
