Reza Nosratti was born in Sanandaj, Iranian Kurdistan, in 1980. He received a BA from Shahed Art University of Tehran in 2006 and an MA from the same university in 2008. His works have been exhibited in over thirty solo and group exhibitions in Tehran and Sanandaj. He has won the outstanding Young Painter's Award of Western Iran four times in 2000, 2001, 2003, and 2005 and in 2003 he was awarded the second prize of the Biennial of Young Iranian Painters.
The artist is best known for his exploration of the unrevealed through color. Nosratti gives rein to the magic of the traditional colors of Kurdish clothes and the swirls of the reeling Kurdish dance and song directly onto the walls of the gallery creating a synthesis of color and form. His spontaneous forms wed the brilliance of color to transport the viewer to a realm that is simultaneously primitive and yet very much a part of the twenty first century.
In his recent paintings he has embellished his works with ever more probing layers waiting to be explored by the artist and viewer alike. Reza Nosratti currently lives and works in Tehran where he paints and exhibits his work regularly.
Gallery Mamak has an aim:

At a time when the need for dialogue
between cultures has reached its peak there is a definite lack of
exchange between Iranian and world culture. On our part, we seek to
offer an insight into the life and works of Iranian artists, writers
