Maral Manissalian’s paintings take on a critical view of social, political and cultural issues. They are a powerful interpretation of her curiosities and opinions. The images that she creates are devised from her personal experiences. Each artwork aims to take on a form that challenges traditional notions of what art should be. Her work is constructed freely, while holding an intentional balance of composition, colors, lines, forms, symbols and harmony. Manissalian has had several solo and collective exhibitions in Lebanon, Syria, Paris, Monaco and Mumbai.
