Mina Afra

Mina Afra is a Melbourne based landscape artist working primarily in oil. After working for years as a graphic designer, French teacher and gemmologist, in 2020 Mina decided to follow her dream of becoming a professional artist and she has been painting full time since. Her passion for art and painting is rooted in her early childhood watching her mum painting landscapes in oil. Through her art she seeks to depict the rhythm, fluidity and the sense of connection that exists in nature. Each of her paintings is a compilation of quick drawings, colour studies and photos from her daily walks or past travels. The interrelation of all life forms in nature as dancing together in her eyes, inspires her and she aims to convey her feelings of enjoyment and excitement while immersed in nature. She attempts to discover her internal landscape through painting the external one, sometimes by manipulating colours and forms, seeking emotional truth over visual representation.

Mina holds a Bachelor of Graphic design from the Tehran University of Art, a Master of Teaching French (FLE) and a Diploma in Gemmology from Gemmological association of Australia. In 2020, she attended Colour Mixing and Landscape Painting courses at Will Kemp Art School (online) and Oil On Board painting workshop with Yasaman Servatian to brush up her skills.
