For me creating art is always about telling a story. I like to paint moments that are like film stills. Those moments are mostly about identity of an artist, an individual. The environment I live in and the history of visual arts in my country is a big part of my identity as an artist. Film Stills, comics, graphic novels, photographs that I take of the life around me, Persian ceramic and Persian paintings have been sources of inspiration for my paintings.

Thoughts About Art and Community

As an artist that comes from Tehran, I want my work to be a bridge, that connect my culture and identity with the culture, identity of Toronto.
