Being an activist artist is a privilege. It is a responsibility that extends beyond my occupation. Through my work, I take an active role to effectively become an agent for positive change. My view as a world citizen is my intent for elimination of all types of violence, racial and gender-based prejudices, and inequities in society. The focus of my current body of work is on protest art and performances. Protest art especially live performances act as a poignant tool to form social consciousness for positive change in public places. The ongoing body of work is entitled: “Get Your Power Back” from the “Color of Violence and Wound Healing” series, is on generating public awareness on the short- and long-term effect of domestic violence on people by sharing told and untold stories of survivors of domestic violence particularly from Iran and the United States of America.
