Short bio Currently living and working in Norway as a visual artist. I work with both personal and client-based projects worldwide.

I was born in Shiraz/Iran. My parents and I fled the country when I was seven years old. This was during the Iran-Iraq war. The Netherlands become my new home where I grew up and where I studied visual communication at the school of arts in Utrecht.

Below you can find a selection of solo and group shows I have participated in. You can also find a list of clients and publications.



Statement
For over a decade now, misuse of power has played a big role in my work.
I have focused on wars, genocides and politics. At the same time, I have also worked with more metaphysical subjects like life, death and reality.

Recently my focus has grown towards the relationship dynamics between the victim and the offender. These projects are mostly from the victims perspective. Sexuality, femininity and the human nature plays a big role here.

Most of my projects originate from a question. Why do we do the things we do? From there on I try to find answers through my work. These answers help me to understand the world better.
