Biography


The recent projects I am still working on are concentrated on “Time” as a subject in relation with human lifetime, emotions and memories. The basic idea of these projects is focused on human Insensible elimination due to the factors which are not in our control; such as political or social restrictions, war, natural disasters and also environmental problems that lead to more sorrow and anxiety. In my opinion, “Time” is an important factor to heal the fear and cure wounds. Actually “time” works as layers to cover the “sorrow” and let us survive. As a Tehran based Artist, it has been always interesting for me that, how do my people deal with all special challenges and difficulties. My main focus is on painting and drawing, especially in recent years, working with techniques related to mono-print and mono-type and related mediums is very attractive to me because of unpredictable and gradual manners in the process of working with. In this regard, as the process of each project development is so important to me, over past years, I had more serious study and experience in working with organic mediums and time-based media, which was positively inspiring in my recent projects and expanding the main ideas. So, depending on each project, there is no limited media to work with.
