“. I was born in Sharray which is a small city near the capital of Iran, Tehran. To this day, my artwork is based mostly on my dreams. Many times, I have been compelled to wake up at three O’clock in the morning and begin to create what I have just dreamt about.
When I was a child, I always used to watch my father draw pictures of a small fox. While watching him, I practiced hard and knew I had to draw the fox better than he could. Even in those days, I would walk around gazing intensely at everything whilst paying special attention to colours until I could paint the fox.”
