I’d rather draw what I remember than what I saw. So I chose 10 special countries I have been to and painted the memory of those stories happened there. Until those moments became the memory, I realized how valuable they were.
Theatre art is the combination of music, dance, painting, and literature, it’s the most beautiful art which I couldn’t stop loving. Painting the series of drama and theater is not a fast process, cause I need to read the play, watch the performance, choose which one and which scene to paint, and think about how to paint based on my standing.
I’d love to treat my life as a theater and play it as hard and splendid as I can.
Plutarch said that ” Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks.”
Recently I just fell in love with poetry, so I created 10 pieces of Persian Princess portraits based on 10 of my favorite poems by 10 poets.
I come, I eat, I sleep, I die.
This is how I spend my lifetime.
My Persian Princess told me, no, I come from a different place, where every bird and rose, every mermaid and lion would celebrate kindness, integrity, courage, persistence, and love.
They call it FAIRYTALES.
That was the second month in Iran, one day I took a taxi from the North to the South, when I looked out the window, I saw a Persian Princess in black chador flying over the snow mountain and yellow building towards me. When we started each other, I knew that she will be with me for my whole life.
I was living in Iran for one year, in Tehran, on the snow mountain. That was the year 1395, in Persian Calendar. During the Persian New Year holiday, I took a notebook and several markers and started my first painting trip, from Tehran, to Anzali, Isfahan, Naein and Shiraz.
