I am very much influenced by what happens in the media, i often take influences from magazines i read or news stories. These 3 pieces are very important to me as thy show 3 huge events in my life. The first being last year (2014) I beat my eating disorder that had controlled my life for a good few years, this piece was a real release to me to show myself how far i had come and to show others you can win. The second is a portrait i did of Benazir Bhutto after her assassination in 2007, which hit me really hard as she was and still is a huge inspiration to me. The last piece i did after i watched a program about gay rights and saw it was a hanging offence to be gay in Iran and this hit me hard. So i decided to draw up my ideas and this was the final result.
I hope you enjoy my work i will be posting very often :)

Just a quick update the M.U.D exhibition is now live and running and continues to show until Thursday the 2nd of July.
My piece “Buried Treasure” is up in this exhibition and it is made from Porcelain objects that i reproduced from less valuable items that i made casts and molds from. you can read more about my work here.
You can see a video of how i made this piece on my Youtube channel. This video shows how after producing the porcelain objects i placed them onto the Board to create a landfill look.
The video is available to watch here.
I am proud to announce that i will be displaying my work in the “Engagement and Entrapment” exhibition in Cyprus at the Zmart Gallery Nicosia.

My final plaster mold, this one is of a chip and burger box, something that does not have much value in society but i’m trying to change that by using porcelain clay to create the shape.
Next stop is to fire all my products and see how they come out, lets hope for minimal breakages !!!!!
Still working on my piece for the M.U.D exhibition at the end of this month, the piece looks at how we place value on items such as those we use to drink out of and have take away food in. So i have been making these items in porcelain clay to change there value to an individual, i will also be painting them gold so that they look expensive and beautiful,
