Manaz Raiszadeh



Manaz Raiszadeh is a self-taught French-Afghan artist located in San Diego, California. She is an intuitional abstract painter who has been exploring and discovering our world and herself through her art. Her primary mediums are acrylic paint, oil pastels, and paper collage. Her paintings tell the stories that her words cannot express. She is fascinated by the places we have been and the stories we are told. She believes that the universe gifted her a French edge, a Californian dream, and some hot boiling Afghan blood- and that is her duty to share it with the world.


“Art is my way to share a bit of myself with the world and to show gratitude to the universe. Acrylic paint, oil pastels, paper scraps, crayons, charcoal mediums assist me to share my art. I enjoy the natural, unexpected and flexible aspects of these mediums. I am blessed to create daily from my home studio. Painting connects me to the universe and you can never be connected enough.”
