He qualified from Tehran University of Art with a Master's Degree in Architecture. 
When he first started painting, he adopted watercolours and sketches for the purposes of his initial architecture designs. Esthetics soon took over the functional side and he found himself painting for artistic purposes rather than functional, architectural purposes. 
His work was becoming a means for him to connect with himself and his surroundings and share these impressions with others, communicate with others.
Since the transformation of his work from design to art, he has participated in several solo and group exhibitions in Iran and overseas.
