I was born in Tehran in 1961. I graduated in fine art in 1993. Although
I chose sculpture as my principle study, painting has always played a major
role in my life. I have exhibited all around the UK, both as a one-man
show and in group exhibitions.
As in my sculptures, in my paintings I follow a simple rule. It has
to feel right. Colors, forms and the overall composition of my paintings
are a result of stripping down the hard shell of conventional sensibility
and traditional approach to realism. I try to see a carpet from the knot,
rather than the reverse.
