About ten years ago, I decided to free my disabled body for the first time from the bounds with which I had lived for three decades. I did know that untangling the safe spots that had shaped my corporeal and behavioral habits could also affect my artistic development. This was a process that started with therapy and resulted in critical thinking about the representations of the disabled body in contemporary art and artistic practices. I seek to make stronger connections between artistic practices, disability studies, and research-based print projects. I ask: how do people with disabilities revitalize their bodies with the help of creative arts as a means of self-expression.
I am a printmaker and painter from Iran. I hold my BA in painting from the Azad University of Art and Architecture in Tehran. I presented my first solo exhibition at Azad Gallery in February 2007. Since then, I've exhibited at Homa and Shirin Gallery (Tehran) and Haan Gallery (Shiraz).
