My painting style is impressed by the Persian miniature, challenging the strict formal tropes of the genre by experimenting with various forms of new media. It is incorporated both the figurative and the abstract with the use of vibrant colors. The vibrant colors come from the Philosophy of illumination. The Far East countries emphasize illumination referring to the Eshraghy philosophy who believes in the notion of light throughout the entire universe. The notion of light is a fundamental point in common between the illuminations and the artists and encourages a world without borders.
