My name is Seya Hashemi. I was born in Ray which is a small city near the capital of Iran, Tehran.
When I was a child, I always used to watch my father draw pictures of a small fox. While watching him, I practiced hard and knew I had to draw the fox better than he could. Even in those days I would walk around gazing intensly at everything whilst paying special attention to colour.
To this day my artwork is based mostly on my dreams which I never forget. Many times, I have been compelled to wake up at three O'clock in the morning and begin to create what I have just dreamt about. Therefore, all my paintings and drawings are original compositions without the use of models, photographs, objects or backgrounds.
Due to my father's influence, I grew up always wanting to be a great artist or famous painter. I believe that by continually utilizing my imagination and transferring it onto the canvas, I can bring my dreams to reality. Hopefully, someday my childhood dream for the future will be realized.
Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to submit my artwork into the West Torrens competition. All the submissions were excellent and would like to see where this competition takes these artists. Again, thank you so much for your opportunity you give to all South Australians.
