MINA ASGARI, was born in Tehran, Iran. Growing up around the botanical farm owned by her parents in Kashan.  Being surrounded by nature and participating in the tradition of picking rose flowers alongside the rural women of Kashan are some of Mina’s most cherished memories. Her upbringing developed her passion for nature, defined her tendencies in choosing materials and her technical ability to manipulate objects and various materials. It has always been her goal to gain experience working with different mediums, such as painting, drawings, installations, photography and video, performance. She often experiments with colors and blends them on different materials and fabrics, like an alchemist with her room as her very own lab.
