Nabibakhsh Mansoori paintings are exuberant, and at times surreal. Mansoori looks at the world through the kaleidoscope of color, skewed and layered imagery. He loves to throw the viewer off balance and make them take a second look at the work drawing them into his world. And in Mansoori's world is a vortex, which has no beginning or end; it is a seamless existence of reality and the dream world.

Mansoori who grew up in a small village has many fond memories of roaming by the rivulet and in the farms and painting the world around. Even then it was color that fascinated him. Mansoori discovered color as a child when his father gave him a prism, convex and concave lens. The way Mansoori saw the world around changed. Till date Mansoori likes to create a world that is simple and reflects his vision. He is not driven by any agenda or lofty ideals.

An element that is of interest in Mansoori's painting is the use of multiple points of focus. This is a deliberate choice of the artist. This can be traced to the imagery of the puppet shows the artist saw as a child in his native village. When Mansoori moved to the city to pursue higher education his paintings initially reflected the city life, but it was gradually that he found his true calling and turned to the experiences and memories from childhood and this has continued to be a wellspring of inspiration.

In his desire to recreate the bright colors seen through the prism Mansoori glides between the use of oils and acrylics as his medium. Dramatic use of light, unconventional perspective and bold crisp colors is hallmarks of Mansoori's paintings.
