ARTIST’S STATEMENT

My practice delivers an experience of moving back and forth from Middle East to West, a shift from Traditional art to modern and contemporary art and from a subject to an object. My practice follows subcultural contemporary Iranian painting SAQQĀ-ḴĀNA movement. It’s basicaly following same approach with different ingrideint and visual elements. In my practice I try to define a visual narrative from current pop culture and it’s subcultures, borrowing motifs and elements empowering with rhythm and repetition.
