Born shortly after the Islamic revolution, the artist spent his entire childhood amidst the arid landscapes, surrounded by sand and dust. At the age of 15, the artist's family embarked on a journey, moving from city to city, eventually settling in Tehran. Here, he was accepted into a bachelor's degree program in painting at the faculty of art and architecture in Tehran University.

In the bustling metropolis of Tehran, the artist's life took an unexpected turn during the final semesters of his university studies, as he found himself ensnared in an unjust judiciary system. This experience deeply affected both the artist and his art, sparking an unyielding obsession with justice that soon manifested in all his works. In his art, he depicts scenes of a judge in a confined space, inviting viewers to step into the role of the judge and explore the intricacies of judgment and expression.

Currently, the artist is engrossed in his master's thesis and preparing for his third solo exhibition. As his artistic journey continues, the pursuit of justice remains an unwavering theme, guiding the artist's creative endeavors and inviting viewers to partake in the dialogue of justice and humanity. 

"LINES Series"
In the vast expanse of outer space, celestial bodies often take on round forms and exude various forms of energy. Our understanding of volume and energy reveals the stability and perpetual motion within these rounded entities. But questions arise - can a round mass like Earth endure alterations, partitions, and imposed boundaries while maintaining its natural processes? Does such disruption disturb the harmonious order, unaware of its consequences? Does the energy within these entities remain unchanged, continuing its inherent behaviors?

The disruptive factors explored in this artwork delve into themes of monopolization, belief, government, value, energy, and borders. The implications of these factors ripple throughout history, leading to increasing disasters like wars and massacres. As society and our knowledge of the world evolve, the enigmatic question persists - how do certain events persist despite our advancements?

In the quest for answers, the artist imaginatively traverses the silence of stars, seeking insights from the vantage point of outer space. One revelation lies in the myriad flags that have graced Earth throughout history. Simple colored lines, mere symbols from afar, bind our destinies, creatures, and the Earth itself. The artist's works, inspired by the colors of their country's flag - green, white, and red - embody the essence of each hue through symbolic forms, conveying profound concepts in their artistic expressions.
