Artists Statement

Villages in North of Tehran.

Landscapes of northern Tehran villages were always the best resources for me to paint. I enjoy wandering in back alleys in Darakeh, Darband, Farahzad, Darabad, seeking for a subject to paint: labyrinth of narrow alleys, cobwalls covered by straw or tins, brick entrances of gardens inviting the viewer to come in, balconies decorated by beautiful architraves, etc. These houses composed by fruiters, rivers and hills make a wonderful "Architecture-Nature" composition. Unfortunately in these last ten years I have seen many of these houses, over-doors and cobwalls ruined by urban developers. Maybe a few old trees remain and tell the future-comers about these landscapes and maybe these ink drawings would be their single witness.
