His debut exhibition in Iran is entitled “I saw a cracked labyrinth”. He was born in Berlin in 1971 of a German mother and Iranian father. He began his artistic work as a commercial photographer and made the transition to sculpture in 2004. Later, he traveled to Iran with his father and began researching the connection between geometry and aesthetics in Islamic architecture.
His works are a fusion of Islamic and western legacies. It is inspired by the universal language of mathematics as much as by particular memories and religious references.
