Mobina Nouri

Artist Biography

Born in Esfahan, Iran, Mobina Nouri currently lives and works in San Francisco, USA.

Mobina Nouri is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice reflects her personal history as a female immigrant who left Iran to live in the UK and later the US. Working across a variety of media, the artist mines her country’s tradition of storytelling, often turning to Persia’s literature, philosophies, and mysticism to contemplate and reconsider the complexities she bears witness to in the contemporary moment. Nouri received her BA in Performance Art and MA in Product Design from the Fine Art Faculty of Tehran University, Iran, and her Ph.D. in Creativity Science from City University London, UK.

Nouri has exhibited her work internationally. Many of her artworks have been acquired by prominent private collections across the globe. Recently, a piece from her Poetography series was exhibited in San Francisco’s de Young Museum, as well as featured in local and international publications. Nouri received the 2020 MOZAIK Future Art Award, the 2020 Juror’s Choice in the “Art Saves Humanity” Competition curated by a panel of renowned art world advocates & entrepreneurs, including Jerry Saltz, as well as the 2019 Juror’s choice award at the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery. She was a selected juror for MOZAIK Future Art’s “Re-Imagining Democracy” exhibition in 2021 and was selected to be an artist in residence at Djerassi for their 2022 program in the Bay area. She is currently teaching Creativity methods at UC Berkeley University in Arts and Design Department.
