I was born in the northwest of Iran (Azerbaijan Province) and grew up in the capital Teheran. The loss of the mother at an early age made the idea of a family, intangible. It was in my teenage years that my imagination was touched by art, a spark. Its persuasion was a glimpse of freedom in the suppressed society. I learned the basics. Inspired by culture & art from across the world began self-studies. My interest in science, politics, philosophy(of mind) was the reason for developing an interest in interdisciplinarity. In my early 20's, I was able to travel abroad and a year later in 2011, I started my art studies at the Royal Academy of Arts, the Hague. I travelled through different cities & countries, experienced a diversity of cultures and languages. I found not only the Idea but also the embodiment of universality and 'globality'. It was from the very beginning one of my intellectual adventures.
