We live in a busy and loud world where we are online all the time and seems to not be able to have quite time or communicate in the right way. I wanted to create an exhibition and invite the viewers to slow their day down, enjoy the pieces in silence and connect with them directly, try to figure out the story they wish to tell. My aim has always been to create pieces which are not only visually interesting (hopefully!) but also starts a dialogue. That is when we can start to find that common ground, no matter where we come from, what religion we follow or what color of skin we have. 

I was honored when Sergio Gomez asked me to exhibit at his beautiful space, 33 Contemporary Gallery located at Zhou B Art Center. My vision was to create a show where pieces speaks to viewers and also make them affordable. The show comes to life with 53 pieces, all 6x6 inches. 5 and 3 have always been my numbers throughout life and one day looking them up out of curiosity,  realized 5 symbolizes Freedom and 3 symbolizes Creativity and everything started to fall into place even more. 

Each piece has a different look and all are different from one another but they all have one thing in common, the love and energy they carry, the shapes which might seem familiar from the Persian and Islamic architectural shapes, the vibrant colors of Persian rugs, the beautiful Farsi calligraphy and Rumi poetry which is only a small part of the rich and beautiful culture of my motherland. 

I invite you to enjoy the silence of the space, if you listen, you will hear the pieces talking to you, they are telling you their story. While going through the creation process, I was reminded by below quote by Rumi:- 

"Listen to silence, it has so much to say"

First of all Happy New Year to you all. 

It's safe for me to say 2017 was not the best year for me as I'm sure for most of you, so I wanted to start 2018 right. As you might know by now, in my pieces I try to portray the power of "Love" in our lives. I'm a firm believer in Love and I wanted to do something to be able to give back. 

So I'm happy to announce that all my pieces will be 20% off during this month up to Valentines Day - February 14th 2018 - and what's better? That 20% that will be taken off will be donated to the charity of you choice! You will get a confirmation from the charity with the amount donated under your name...

All you need to do is go to my website, Instagram and/or FaceBook Page and pick your favorite love piece that you always wanted! Then just send me an Email (mentioned below). Once we confirm details on the price, charity and all, you will have your piece with you in few days. 

So let's show some love! I can not wait to hear from you all and hope you join me to give back to those in need.
