BA in Graphic Design from Shiraz Soureh University.
My focus has mainly been on printmaking. Searching for a personal style, I turned more and more to photoengraving. It didn’t take long before I became fascinated by the printing plates themselves, which became my first artwork in a group exhibition in 2012. After that experience, I decided to develop this skill and make use of the capacities of the engraving techniques to realize my intricate mental images. The goal was to achieve a glorious and unique quality, with my source of inspiration being the geometric shapes and stark sketches of engine parts, drawings of industrial machinery and biological illustrations. Moreover, I became obsessed with aged things, like old structures, shabby buildings, battered and rusty objects, and old factories, deserted towns etc. The older they were, the more intriguing they became. For me, they symbolize the passage of time and almost like a time capsule, they vibrate with a mysterious frequency. This could perfectly be translated into steel printing plates.
During this process, I resolved to get rid of frames and empty margins: I cut out the drawings in its entirety so that a single shape remained. This gave me freedom not only in design quality but also in presentation. Another benefit would be that the viewer’s attention would be more focused on the work itself.
