His work explores topics of immigration and identity politics through the digital manipulation of photography and video, where reality becomes distorted through an imagined and idealized lens.He connects the reality and imagination in a visual platform, reflecting his essence “Peace, Love, Understanding”
For Pax, the digital collages are a manifestation of his journey and new life in the United States.
He distorts reflections in to celestial beings and bodies are transported into a futuristic world.
They are fantasies, dreams of America pre-immigration, and his continued belief in light creates a world somewhere in between his own ideal and the grim reality projected by others. he escaped from Iran when he was 19 years old, trying to find a new life without all the discrimination against him as a queer artist.
