Oh! Did I also mention that I love the smell of new drawing books and it would
take me quite sometime before I set a dot on it.
In 2015, after high school, i
came across a Mandala tutorial on youtube and like a magnet, i was drawn to this
type of art.
The first attempt was an overlapping Mandala mural in my room which took me
almost three weeks to complete.

Many who have come across my Mandalas have compared them to Persian intricate
As a matter of fact, my ancestral roots date back to the Balochi tribe in
iran whom are closely related to the Persians.

But who knows, maybe my passion for painting intricate Mandalas is a tribute
to the Baluchis.
