    "I have been trying to find a style or language expressive of the modern era. We live in a period of many complications, a period rushing and excitement, a period of ties and confusions, of contradictions and mysteries, of disturbances and high speed, a period color, explosion of wonders and novelties and short, a period of complicated life for today's man. I have been striving to find a style and language for my works which have a new, special and up-to-date elegance and can be viewed as pure painting, rooted in my own country's art and culture". (Koorosh Shishegaran)
