“As the son of a pilot and a stewardess, September 11th had a great impact on me. I had lived in New York as a Fulbright grantee for painting in the 1980's. Seeing the terrible events that took place in 2001, I immediately knew that I have to answer them with the opposite: Love, Tolerance and Respect for the Other. This is why I made my Flying Carpet Series, uniting Eastern and Western cultures in a visual Hay-Kay where I represent the most modern symbol of the West (airplane jets) mingled with the most powerful and historical symbol of the East (the 'Persian' rug). Combining them, I transport all of us into a 1001 nights dream where all of us will respect the differences of other cultures. May peace reign on earth.”
