When you have migrated from one part of the world to another, you express your diverse experiences of culture and identity in the work you make. As an Iranian artist now living in the diaspora, my feelings towards my country have changed. Despite all the political and economic issues, Iran has always been my paradise: a place I can return to, to feel at home. My mixed media paintings are a constant pursuit of the best way to represent what I feel about Iran as my homeland and its future. Utilising photographs of Iranian people in the past and present, merging them with traditional Safavid style paintings in vivid colours, has led to the creation of tempting scenes of an imaginary utopia in my current artworks... Photographs in this project were selected from my own family albums or taken by Iranian professional photographers, who have given their permission to use the images in my work. The photographs are manually transferred to canvas by gloss medium gel. In some works, photographs are transferred in a way to display a tile panel. I chose to use the Safavid painting style and motifs as art in the Safavid Empire (1501-1722) in Iran reached the highest degree of integrity insomuch as some historians such as Sheila R. Canby called it the golden age of Persian art.
