Who is Mazarine Memon?
A celebrated, award-winning and eccentric artist, Mazarine has had several sold-out solo and group exhibitions around the world. She has an avid following of collectors and her works have found pride of place all over the world.
Mazarine intelligently plays on a psychological phenomenon known as Pareidolia (parr-i-DOH-lee-a) – a condition which makes people see familiar shapes and patterns where none exist. Mazarine, however intentionally hides clues in her work. Once you’ve found the clue you can decipher the work or the subject reveals itself. When that happens, it is an aha moment.
No wonder critics have tagged her style as “Mysteries in Colour.”
