Parima gets her inspiration from history and the realities around her. She tries to exhibit her feelings through different materials and tools, getting lost in the creative process and subsequently creating something new. Her own country is a huge inspiration to her and she tries to use the colours, textures and patterns of Iran interspersing it with those from the world around.
