He states: "Letters and words are the vital elements of communication for human beings. In many countries, if intellectual thoughts are expressed by speaking, it is imprisoned, if it is written, it is censored, and I found the way to free the words and thoughts in my paintings. I paint the Persian Letters, which were the tools I used to express my emotions from growing up until now. I have made my own brushes and pens in large sizes. So that the letters can express themselves freely on my canvas".
