Artist statement As an immigrant, I have lived through many situations, some are easy and some are hard but encountering these experiences have been enriching my life. When I’ve tried to depict what I felt during these years, I’ve felt that It has all kind of human’s feelings. I can say that we are all sharing what immigrants have been feeling. If we take about find a better place to live, we all do that. If we seek a good life where our families live safely, we all want that. We all move to new places, Meet new people, encounter difficulties and easiness. Enjoy the sweetness of triumph and hate the bitterness of loss. Seeding myself in a new soil hasn’t been easy, but I’ve been enjoying every moment of it because it is exactly what I’m doing in my art; looking for a new, exciting, beautiful, deep and worth. As working in art has made me richer and better person, being immigrant has walk enriched me and that what I want to share with you. The happiness of success and the bitterness of loss and miss. My artwork depend on trial and exploration. When I start my painting, whether it is a broad brush, a pencil line or a solid colored space, I always find a human in it. Those humans are not aliens, I know them, I feel them, they are part of me . I become those people whom I draw. I know what they believe and I can tell their stories. In this journey I've been enjoying the searching for beauty of lines, brush strokes and dialogue between masses and spaces on the surface of my paintings. The art work has made me richer and better person.
