Tooloo Naseri (b. 1985, Tehran, Iran) is a graduate of photography from Faculty of Art and Architecture of Islamic Azad University Tehran and has studied art and painting under Bobak Etminani.
For her works, Naseri gains inspiration from both her observations and her memories. As she considers painting a “process”, her final work results from constant experiencing and experimenting, which results in an altered version of her initial idea and experience. By incorporating man, nature, and animal in her paintings, Tooloo Naseri creates a peculiar yet familiar world, a world in which the border between reality and fantasy and outside and inside is hardly visible. As Naseri says: “in this world, nothing is where it’s supposed to be.”
