My work aims to add further layers of complexity and interpretation to subject matter–be it Islam, modernity, or youth culture–often depicted in a monolithic manner. The Islamic arts, from their preference for decoration over figuration, to the production of the art itself, challenge the very understanding we have in the West of both art and the artist. The Maxiatures essentially secular compositions, they are rare examples of figurative work aimed for an exclusively courtly audience. They highlight this paradox by demystifying contemporary life in the Islamic Republic of Iran
