I have grew up in an artistic environment. Participating in art festivals and exhibition inspires me and keeps me a live! Participating in art exhibitions and meeting other artists for me is as crucial as water is for fish. The issue of "Immigration" has been occupying my mind for many years and it has been the main subject of my art works and paintings. Immigration is not a new concept and not only for human being, but other species immigrate too. I myself am an immigrant myself and left my home town when I was young to pursue art in the university in Tehran. Later on I immigrated to US. Lately in many of of my paintings I was inspired by symbols and elements in old Persian tiles from 12 century ago.
