The space in between all the physical objects

This work is about migration, about the migrants who drawn in the sea while fleeing war and hunger from their homelands.

The Painless method

This video art is a critic to capital punishment and execution in public. I have narrated some lines of the book "Golestan" by the ancient Iranian poet "Sa'di" in order to express my thoughts regarding this matter.

Edge of the blade

For so many reasons, like for that moment you try to count the stars shining in the dark sky above you, or that time you were reading under the bright light of the lamp, or perhaps for other simpler reasons, you might find yourself reviewing every moment of your life like you are playing on the slide of memories and swallowing them all and at once. Other than the joy, you will also find all the terrifying experiences that might have turned all these beautiful moments into a disaster. Those of you whose childhood, like mine, has been elapsed with the experience of war know exactly what I am talking about. You know that the beauty of all those moments was never expected to last. You know what I mean, you remember that the sound of "the red" alert meant that you have to turn off the lamp on your book at your bed in a glance and make sure that no other lamp is on while the red alert is penetrating deep into your ears, then you see the frightened faces of your mom and dad trying to keep you safe and sound smiling at you and whispering nice words into your ears. You could never be sure that all the stars that you are counting in the dark sky are actually the stars and are not bombing aircrafts. Those days are all gone now… you are not experiencing those moments any more (others might experience them at the moment), that said, this feeling will never let you be. This feeling, with a taste of bitterness is hidden beneath every moment of your life, cutting you repeatedly, as sharp as a razor blade. This feeling is hidden with its sharp edge somewhere in the air around you. You are feeling the edge of the blade on your skin, in your inside.

Biopsy of a close memory

It is all about war and massacre that happens in the war. War between nations, countries, religions and ideologies…. Ever since my childhood I have witnessed so many wars on the news. Watching all these news we all have witnessed wars, the war between Iran and Iraq, the massacre on the streets of Tehran in 2009, the massacre of Balkan, the war of Bosnia and Serbia, the massacre in Somalia, the massacre in Afghanistan, in Iraq, the massacre in Syria. Sadly the massacre in Syria is still going on. This Video-art is a biopsy of the massacres we've been witnessed on the news, all the blood that has coloured the history of war.

Music and Flowers

When I used to be a kid, right after the revolution, any kind of advertisement was abandoned both on the TV channels and on the streets. As a school kid whose childhood was merged with revolution and war, I liked reading books, drawing and watching TV, with that said the programs you could see on your TV were boring to death, and all that I remember is that if someone was dare enough to turn the "magic box" on, there was this "Kid's program", the "News", and a movie or TV show and between them the "Flowers" and the "Music". Those days, any kind of music was forbidden too, yet the magic box was allowed to show photos of the flowers alongside with a classical music, which later turned to be videos of flowers along side with the classical music. These images of flowers, whether it was a photo or a video, were ugly and kitsch, like all the photos you may find on these cheap post cards. Listening to Vivaldi is still one of my choices from time to time, but I think of those days that have been burned for nothing, all those lives that have been taken in the war, and all those useless ugly images of the beautiful flowers.

Insomnia

The Insomnia project comprises three series; paintings, drawings and a video piece. The subject matter which relates these pieces is simultaneously simple and complicated; leading to multiple layers of meaning though seeming easy to grasp at the first glance. more...

Self Portrait

Video art, it's the portrait of the artist melting and disappearing into the darkness, while there are some hand writings on the screen, expressing the artist's thoughts. I have done paintings on same theme, Self portrait series. In fact I have at least one self-portrait in each and every series of my art works.
