My watercolour paintings | Elmira Shirgir.
I’m Elmira Shirgir, from Tehran in Iran.My engagement in painting began when I started doing a masters degree in landscape architecture at the university of Tehran. I used a mixture of markers and watercolour as my rendering technique for school work.
I ,then, began working as a landscape architect professionally in many parts of the world for many years including Australia and America.
I have also used watercolour as my presentation technique during my professional years as a landscape architect.But I professionally started painting with it ,2 and a half years ago.
I am back home, now and currently doing a PhD in Urban Design at IUST.
painting has definitely opened up new doors for me, spiritually, emotionally and socially. I feel ‘freedom’ and ‘tenderness’ when painting with watercolour and truly believe that painting is poetry.
I have participated in one group exhibition in Tehran so far and there will be many more exhibitions and more new paintings to come.
