1. Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Parjam Parsi, I am figurative painter, exploring human form.
2. Why art?
You can experience things day after day, keep them or even lose some of them, express your self and … at the end maybe you can make something from pure silence and solitude that can speak by itself. I still haven’t found anything like it, with the same power, that can move the world forward for me
3. What is your earliest memory of wanting to be an artist?
I had apparently done that before I was even remembering I had.
4. What are your favorite subject(s) and media(s)?
Mostly the human form interests me. I am currently painting with acrylic, but I also work in drawing medium such as ink.
5. How do you work and approach your subject?
I work most of time in a very direct manner with some very expressive actions. I am old fashioned you know. Some times I apply some thin washes of colors to bring out highlights, then with the brush I really want to resemble drawing relationship between media/paper, or acrylic/canvas.
6. What are your favorite art work(s), artist(s)?
From ancient masters and from modern masters like Auguste Rodin, Philip Guston and Mark Rothko.

I try to be honest as much as I can with out any pretense.

Work hard, be your first judge and never be satisfied with what you doing at the time.

Challenge my self with my media and exploring new medias but with a figurative approach.
