Artist Statement from Mamak Khadem

With Whispers Of Spring-Bad-e Bahar - I seek to let Nowruz redefine our geographical boundaries and transcend them by learning and drawing inspiration from one another’s art and culture.

As an artist I have always been attracted to similarities in cultures and music from different countries. And I have looked for themes that can be used to bring people of different countries closer to one another. Nowruz is one of these themes that is a constant for people from many different cultures and music that can be centered on the celebration of spring and Nowruz.
