In Laft I faced new challenges. Because of religious beliefs, painting a living being, especially human beings, is forbidden. Although my paintings are very simple and symbolic, I nevertheless went for another language. I have never been a serious landscape and architecture painter. But I tried to draw paintings that could be understood by the local community and show their own environment. Painting can be a media for diallage with the local community.
