To Be Iranian

In my opinion, to be an Iranian artist is not trying to make an Iranian mask or to pretend to be an Iranian artist by using some traditional, conventional and repetitive objects in the artworks! Instead we have to try to show ourselves, our inner needs, our ego. If we live in Iran and we eat, drink, wear, hear, walk, talk, think and observe like Iranian people, so we have an Iranian ego and everything is ready in order to be an Iranian artist! If we are such people, this being Iranian will be appeared in our artworks clearly! Even if an Iranian lives in a foreign country but has the same Iranian attitudes and believes so he can be an Iranian artist as good as an artist living inside the country. 
We have a Persian proverb by Sa'di Shirazi (1213?-1292?), that says: Musk smells by itself not by (The Complement of) the perfumer. (Moshk an ast ke khod bebooyad, na anke attar begooyad)
