I am an iranian artist living in Milan, Italy. I was born in Esfahan, Iran. I studied Graphic in Tehran( Art& Architectural Azad University). I moved to Italy to continue my studies in Art in Florence and after graduating in decoration I moved to Milan and I studied master of visual art in Milan’s fine arts academy( Academia delle belle arti di Brera).
My inspiration comes from my dreams and nightmares, my fears and doubts, my hopes and worries, myths, persian miniatures, nature, objects. After years of livinig in Italy certainly my art works are a combination of the Iranian and European culture. I create my paintings and illustrations in a variety of media, including watercolor and ink. I also create installations and books art by using different material.
