Five questions | Five answers

What is it like to be an Iranian artist today?
Here, in the western world, as soon as you are introduced as an Iranian artist, people expect controversial attitudes, and sometimes look for something negative ; but in a certain way, we are proud of our country, proud of its history and its culture, that is so strong today. All is not perfect in our country, but art should and may breed elevation, not controversy.

How would you define your work in five words?
Abstract, narrative, contrasted, harmonious, and aesthetic.

What is the best tool to create a work of art? Why?
To be motivated, to feel the need of acting our commitment (this is a deeply rooted need in me), and also speedily materialize my inspiration, otherwise, it will be too late.

What message do you wish to convey through your art?
To be motivated, to feel the need of acting our commitment (this is a deeply rooted need in me), and also speedily materialize my inspiration, otherwise, it will be too late.

How must a gallery be today in order to represent your work?
A gallery must lend an ear to the artists with a sense of understanding. It must seek a diversity of audiences and clients, and be able to sell at a suitable price. The Gallery should have a strong and recognizable identity as well as a project for the artists it stands for.
