I am half illustrator / half banana.
I am a Nuclear Power Engineer who became an Illustrator / Art Director / Artist / Creator /
after an epileptic accident in Iran. But this sho(r)t story is
not for this page,
maybe for the novel or the interview.
love to communicate visually with people, whom (probably) I will never see in my life. I adore to tell stories, catch feelings, make connections, encourage reflection.
Somehow, I have
understood, that creativity — the cheapest and the most powerful weapon / magic
wand / instrument (ok, hope is free, but anyway) that I’ve ever known. And
creativity can change this world locally and globally in some way.
My visual communication is based on double meaning, symbolic and playful language, that is like a music — does not need a translation.
Sometimes, it should be both the “!” and the “?” at the same time, catching the attention and provoking a question “What is this about?”, like posters do.
Or it should complement the context, making information more memorable, like editorial illustrations do. It depends on what we do, and together we are able to do everything.
In addition, I try to follow the principle voiced by Anthony Burrill: 'Work hard and be nice to people'.
