I was born in in the ancient city of Persopolis in Iran. After graduating from Art University of Tehran with a degree in Graphic Design in 2004, I set up a graphic studio in Tehran and served many clients for 5 years. My passion for painting led me back to full-time painting since 2009.
A characteristic of my work is the movement of colour and form. This form takes the style of a perpetual movement inspired by the movement of universe and rhythm of life. Continuously moving, changing and turning around itself, sun and moon. My technique of work is inspired by Persian calligraphy and abstraction on a variety of materials including acrylic on canvas, wood, walls, and fabric. My style is a journey between the ancient and modern, eastern and western influences.
I participated in my first group exhibition at Tehran’s prestigious Hooman Gallery in 2011. My early influences were masters who used vibrant colours such as Van Gogh and Klimt. Traditional Persian Miniature paintings were also among my early influences. I was drawn to the vibrant colours for their positivity and beauty of life they conveyed, because Iran was at war during my childhood and vibrant colours conveyed happiness and hope for me personally. I held my first solo exhibition at Shelman Art Gallery(Tehran, 2012). The theme my first exhibition was butterflies, I was captivated by their beauty and the intricate and unique patterns on their wings. This exhibition was well received by the artworld.
I wanted to explore the rest of the world and broaden my horizons. I moved to Turkey in 2013 and participated in an exhibition of Calligraphy at Ahmet Gallery in Istanbul. A running theme in my art was circularity of life and my paintings and especially my Calligraphy is an art form that reflected this circularity. Istanbul was an inspiring city for me as it is a bridge between the orient and occident, eastern yet western in its’ outlook. In 2015 I spent a few months in Morocco for an art project. This allowed me to observe a culture famed for its’ vibrant and diverse colours. On my return to Istanbul with a more positive outlook and use of more subtle colours I continued painting. After a year spent in Bucherest during which I held a solo exhibition at Cotroceni National Museum, During this time I visited Malaga for an art project which allowed me to see the culture, climate, nature and most importantly its’ people, so I decided to settle in Spain.
I moved permanently to Valencia, Spain in 2019 to pursue my art. It is very exciting to discover a new county, new culture and be nourished with all that it offers for my art. In my first year in Spain I participated in group exhibition of Universidad Politechnica de Valencia, Faculty of Bellas Artes.
I am currently Learning Spanish and preparing for various exhibitions at my adopted country of Spain.
