"To me, art is not only about making you smile or inspiring awe for the artist talent but to give you the courage to believe in you that can do it too."

“Passionate for art!” We always use, read or hear the common word passion about this and that, and in particular for art. However, though I have been working in the marine field for 8 years, art has truly always been my passion since I was a child. And that is why I studied graphic design and continue drawing every spare moment I get.

I was born in Tehran - Iran. after I finished my secondary school I received my high school diploma in graphic design, then I went to the University of Applied Sciences and Technology in Tehran to continue studying graphic.

Besides, I worked as a graphic designer, for me curiosity and adventure were the major things to decide to choose the be a sailor, I should also mention that I have always been interested in showing my work to the world as well as reaching out to other artists around the globe. I held a solo exhibition of portrait caricature years ago in Tehran and I have traveled extensively from the Middle East to Europe, Asia and to Canada to learn more and more.
