My name is Seya Hashemi. I was born in Ray which is a small city near the capital of Iran, Tehran.
When I was a child, I always used to watch my father draw pictures of a small fox. While watching him, I practiced hard and knew I had to draw the fox better than he could. Even in those days I would walk around gazing intensly at everything whilst paying special attention to colour.
To this day my artwork is based mostly on my dreams which I never forget. Many times, I have been compelled to wake up at three O'clock in the morning and begin to create what I have just dreamt about. Therefore, all my paintings and drawings are original compositions without the use of models, photographs, objects or backgrounds.
Due to my father's influence, I grew up always wanting to be a great artist or famous painter. I believe that by continually utilizing my imagination and transferring it onto the canvas, I can bring my dreams to reality. Hopefully, someday my childhood dream for the future will be realized.
