Atusa Jafari was born in 1999 in Darmstadt, Germany. Her works are inspired by the nature of human beings which she expresses by using symbolism. In her works physical body, psyche and the outside world become one. The compositions involve the viewers directly and allow them to become part of the scenery. 


Her artistic journey began with making portraits of women in their private surroundings. Today she paints self-portraits in which reality and fantasy blur. Jafari's oil paintings are meant to capture honest moments, free from social constraints. Her works are introspective, pursuing a way inwards and deal with the dualities of human nature. To this end, light and shadow became one of the central themes in her recent works.
