Shirin Donia is an emerging German painter who has exhibited her work throughout Frankfurt. Considering herself as an “accountant” artist, she views reliability, punctuality and strategic execution of projects as essential.
” Born 1980 in Germany, I started painting at the age of two, I painted, lying on the carpet, several hours per day. Through an inspiring environment my creativity was always encouraged, because at a young age I met many foreign countries and mentalities. During extensive travels I studied people, arts and culture. Stays in London, the Caribbean, Florida, Middle East, South Africa and Asia influenced my arts. I attended academies in England and the United States. Through additional workout in digital art in a studio in Palma de Mallorca, I developed my enthusiasm for digital media.
Probably I am rather the “accountant” among the artists. Reliability, punctuality and strategic execution of projects are essential for me.
Even though creativity is the main part of my “job”, my artistic existence is not limited to that. I see myself not only as an artist but also as a creative service provider around the topic of art and I live my job freely and flexibly. So I regularly design merchandising products, create calendars or lead art workshops. This diversity in the pursuit of my artistic activity allows me not only to be creative in the creation of my artwork, but also to diversify my everyday life”. – Shirin Donia
