Who is Mona Mandouri? In her own words: "Hi, I am Mona. Most people need a name for an introduction-maybe because they’re too lazy to make one up themselves? I write. I always wrote. I made up bedtime stories until my mom fell asleep. I freestyled about things I have seen and fell in love with during the day. Most of the times I sung them for hours on the toilet. Wich, I still love to do because the acoustic in bathrooms make you sound so lovely. I was too scared to do art. It always looked like a crucial, beautiful dangerous draining solution for everything. Like heroin. That’s how I felt about it. So I went into the creative industry. I became a copywriter-for all sorts of clients around the world during the day hours. I don’t know much about hours. Here I discovered that I always was a writer. And that I have found my purpose a long time ago without noticing. So every now and then, in the other hours, I started to read out my poetry. Every now and then I’ll be part of an art project, installation, design concept, songwriting, video shoot and so on. And I love it. Constantly willing and devoted to express myself for me or for others. And the need to be closer than physically close. Wanting to be in your head and heart close, I guess makes me the writer and person that I am. And I love roses for various reasons. Is that enough information ?"
