Statement

Images of military weaponry and juxtaposing the same with traditional motifs from various cultures of the world, the work appears somewhat ironical- making war weaponry transcend into extremely beautiful images that are often hinting at war as a tool for cultural decay (e.g. a hand grenade fit into a wallpaper like grid of motifs from Persian art).
