When he moved to Turkey, he embraced his new found freedom to express himself as an artist, experimenting in different techniques and subject matter. His first exhibition in Turkey was in the city of Kapajokga, black india ink drawings were the focus of his exhibition. This show was the start of a new era for him, a rebirth. Reza soon was awarded a teaching position in Turkey, he taught many different medium oil, acrylic and his most revered, ink. Life in Turkey embraced and encouraged all that he loves however, Reza’s dreams to paint in the United States was still ahead of him, he actively pursued a move to the States.

In 2012 with the help of United Nation’s artistic freedom refugee program he moved to the United States of America. He soon found his place for the arts in the U.S. He currently resides and paints professionally in Georgia. Reza continues to paint portraits, landscapes, figurative, and experiments in abstraction. His desire to grow, experiment and expand as an artist keeps his mind and heart focused on his craft. He also continues to play music and sings with a group of musicians.

Reza wanted to share his passion and technique, he started teaching oil painting in his atelier in Tabriz, Iran, and on weekends he played music. His life is enveloped in the arts, visual and performance. As a

professionally trained classical singer, he formed an orchestral band, which toured in Oromieh, in Armenia, and included concerts in cities of Karaj, Tabriz in Iran. The concert in Karaj resulted in his arrest and that of the entire orchestration. Reza and company were forbidden by the government to be active in any artistic or musical appearances. To pursue his career and life in the arts, he decided to uproot to Turkey.
