Momen has distinguished himself over his prolific 40 year career as an
international artist of repute with a resilient and idiosyncratic vision.
This is the first time that such a comprehensive body of Momenís works
has been shown in one venue. The exhibition includes works on loan from public
and private collections as far afield as the Nordic Heritage Museum in the United
States, to private collections in Europe and the Middle East. Momen has
exhibited widely in museums and galleries around the world. He was thrice
selected to be shown at the Biennale de Sculpture de Monte Carlo.
Born on the Russian Iranian border to a designer and producer of fine
Persian rugs, Momen was exposed at an early age to the bold colors and
decorative designs of his fatherís craft. His abiding interest in abstraction can
also be traced to his early exposure to the works of the Russian Constructivists.
Momen received his training at the Stuttgart Art Academy where he worked with
Max Ernst and served an internship with Le Corbusier before relocating to
Sweden, becoming a citizen in the early 1960s.
Karl has maintained a studio an home in the USA .
