Gallery 2022 – Maryam Almasi



This collection is about the unexpected mixture of cultures, textures, and humor!
Falling into the arms of the unexpected and celebrating it.
In a constant search for finding the answers to Who I am? Do I fit in? Am I accepted? I often find myself unexpected.
I settled only when I realized, I am who I am! There is nothing more to it!
Concepts like freedom or appropriate have opposite meanings in different cultures.
Conflicts are just funny illusions.
Unexpected is just what we haven’t seen yet.
