ARMIN AMIRIAN STATEMENT & BIO
Art is a world full of peace, beauty, and great feelings. Even if it’s supposed to describe pain or bitterness, it will make it beautiful, lovely, and human.
Art is the mutual language of humanity... It doesn’t matter where you are born, if your heart beats for human wisdom and a world without violence and seeks freedom, you can talk to people of different countries with a musical piece.
The thing that never makes my series and works to start from somewhere and end elsewhere... just like the truth... where the sea ends and the sky begins... I start a dialogue with my audience despite race, language, and birthplace.
