Biography

I was born in March 1969 in Tehran/Iran. I was a little soldier in war between Iran and Iraq in 1988, and very next year I studied Graphic design (BA) and Animation (MA) in Tehran. From the first year of university I got that I love painting and I tried by myself to learn how to paint and how to use color as a painter. For me illustration is a bridge from what I love (Painting) to what I learned (Graphic). and also knowing poets like Bukowski is a key to understanding. I really don’t remember my first encounter with Bukowski but I amazed by his candor, how open he is! And how frank he is and how sad he is and how tough he is, LIKE LIFE!
