Alahkhani Karim's statement about his art:
''I've also found that to create a work of art, its not the authenticity of the materials , but an idea that works differently and more lasting. So I look for my environmental concerns in the field of modern art and the more specific "environmental art", in the paradox between city life and the elements of the nature. I generally work to highlight the problem of eliminating the nature of urban life and mechanization of life.That's why it’s the selection of materials that serves the idea!''

Mahmoud Maktabi’s statement about his art:
„I am interested in blending my body in the environment physically and using the human body as part of the work. The unlimited investigation in the environment deepens as you get more absorbed in nature and as you search more. (…) To me life is an opportunity to discover the concept of beauty that constantly attracts me toward the source and nature of things. My confrontation to the environment and its infinite immensity has shown me a way to observe this beauty from a different way. What allows me to keep going in my work is the process to explore and to create using my physical self.”
