I am an Iranian-born visual artist currently residing in Toronto, ON. As an interdisciplinary artist, my work consists of various mediums such as printmaking, photography, painting, and illustration with a current focus on lens-based media and video art. Through my work, I explore and attempt to depict my personal experiences such as immigration, alienation, and mental illness. I use expressive imagery and fluid lines to create movement and capture humans as patterns, and hollow shapes in order to construct visually striking compositions. Through abstraction and the deconstruction of the human body, I visualize my emotions and the experience of living with body dysmorphia. I am currently exploring my relationship with the community I was raised in and the one I currently reside in through curatorial projects, creating connections between seemingly separate worlds.
