From childhood, from the moment I knew myself, I had a unique relationship with the color and painting world and found painting as an integral part of my body and soul. from a childhood, I felt this deep feeling in every part of my life, a sweet sensation that came from me and brought me into the beautiful world of art. painting was an inevitable sensation, and a familiar sensation was inside me. And the more I grew this passion and enthusiasm inside me, became stronger until the day, I was able to express that familiar sense and my thoughts with my paintings. Painting is an inseparable part of my soul and my life, and I cannot live without painting.

10. How is a work day for you?
A day of work for me is full of energy and enjoyment of all its moments, an indescribable pleasure without any fatigue that makes it possible for hours, without a rest, to convey all my inner feelings on paper. One day in my artistic work gives me an emotion that enables me to continue with all my soul and creates a memorable and influential work.
11.Why humor and satire is important for the society?
In my opinion, the concept of a lot of messages can be made very vividly and easily accessible through humor to people around the world, so that all humans can communicate with each other from any place in the world and in any age group, And exaggeration is the best way to show issues in an artistic way. And since humans have a better relationship with laughter, and there is no constraint on humor in the cartoon, this is a good way to send messages to the world, so that it can bring a smile to the people of the world. And in my opinion, the language of humor is the language of all nations of the world that does not need to be translated.
