About Mehran Mesbah

Mehran’s work is inspired by the process of deformation; the effect certain forces have on physical forms over time. Natural formations such as mountains have been of particular inspiration. The result of millions of years of potential enacted through the upward pressure of tectonics and the downward process of erosion. Similarly, human societies have encountered analogous forces of cultural torsion. The ebb and flow of its artifacts, language, and traditions consumed—knowingly or not—by the contemporary individual. Mehran’s work exerts natural forces upon cultural structures as a reflection on transience and the indefinite continued reinterpretation of visual history.

Mehran is a multidisciplinary artist and currently teaches painting and drawing at Yuba College and Cosumnes River College. He received his MA in Studio Art from California State University, Sacramento in 2012. Previously, he lived and studied art in Calgary, Canada in 2002 and Paris, France in 2005. Mehran exhibits both regionally and internationally. In 2015, the Kunstwerk-Carlshüette invited Mehran to participate in the International NordArt Exhibition held in Büdelsdorf, Germany. In addition he participated in a 3-month artist residency at the Shangyuan Art Museum in Beijing the same year. During his stay in China, Mehran began experimenting with installations, mixing traditional and contemporary art practices. Mehran brought these ideas to Sacramento creating large installations at the Art Street Exhibition in 2017, and an installation at Beatnik titled, “Gaia Ad Infinitum” from 2018-2019. His most recent kinetic sculptures were exhibited at the Robert Else Gallery at CSUS in 2023 as a visiting artist. Mehran enjoys collaborative work and actively participates within the creative Sacramento community.
