ART EXPERIENCES
I have always inspired from sounds and images. From the first days of school,

I have tried to express myself by drawing in book's pages and I've preferred
Art class than others. Afterwards starting art school, and then passing especial
art courses with Mr. Ghobad Shiva(an international graphic designer in Iran),
made me prepared to join with the contemporary art word.
Simultaneously I have participated in some cooperative exhibitions until now. 
It always was interesting for me to product in field of protest and social Art.
I love to use photos and digital illustration together.
