Maral Mavizi is an artist based in Umeå, Sweden. She is currently A part of the artist - run gallery Galleri Verkligheten in Umeå.

 

Her work has had a clear orientation that intertwines issues related to identity, origin, estrangement and liminality.

 

"It is natural to work with these issues when I live with them and try to understand what they mean. Art exists to try to understand my world, to try to understand myself."
