I am a Texas-based artist originally hailing from Göteborg, Sweden by way of Tehran, Iran and I specialize in digital and reclaimed art. After my studies I worked to develop my skills in graphic design and eventually found myself as a creative director where I have been successful for the past 10 years.
Over the years I have developed my own technique using various mediums. Aside from my formal graphic design training and time spent as a Creative Director you could say I am a self taught artist. My urge to create while still caring for our planet enabled me to look at ordinary objects in a new light and transform these commonly discarded materials into something meaningful.
The abstract and figurative work that I create is primarily influenced by the Cubism of Pablo Picasso and the works of Henri Matisse, Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Cornell, Louise Nevelson, Alexander Calder, Robert Rauschenberg, and John Chamberlain.
My work is inspired by natural forms and objects that are not rendered in a naturalistic or representational way but rather simplified or distorted to some extent, often in an attempt to convey the essence of the form or object.
My most recent work derives inspiration from the disparity of war and my main objective is to make a difference for those affected by tragedy and to leave my viewer questioning whether or not they are doing their part. I’m asking my viewer to assume the same attitude and passion with which each piece is created – it’s not enough for you to simply like my work; instead it’s a call to action.
This same attitude and passion I put into my work tells you exactly who I am, and it’s something I challenge everyone with in hopes that they answer the call and make a difference.
