Artist Statement

As an artist , my works have been inspired by beautiful and ancient Iranian culture. I demonstrate this forgotten culture in today's life. I explore my paintings through my mind and imaginations. Colours are very important for me and I use lots of energetic colors to show the significance of my culture. Writing in Presian and using dots is one of the most obvious signs in my paintings. Women is the other signs in my paintings I draw the women in different figures and I like to show their power and beauties. I capture my images by quick brush movement and create them with colours and papers.
