Testimonial by art critic Janae Nunes, on the work of the artist.

"Art as a trained Falcon, fly high and returns to the Falconer: He can fly high and never come back, but he needs to come back, so is the art. In these paintings, colors spread to 17 in geometric shapes, overlapping the colors game, luminous paint and clean, allows you to establish a dialogue between the work and the Viewer.

Jabin don't want to reinvent the wheel and just wants her turn. The painting is constructed in such a way that it becomes organic. A rectangle is a rectangle here in Japan and Iran also. But the context – partner – – environmental politician – is architectural ranging…

Is perfect your balanced overlay of figures (not always rectangular) the support jagged, reflected in our look cards addict, the desire to find them is in construction, condos and slums on the edge of roads. The Organization of the figures inside the support jagged allows a figure game and tireless Fund. The architecture is present; inevitable; impossible not to be remitted to a slum on the painting of Jabin, but it's not that simple. The seam look the scene, unifying pictorially the elements of space. The painting follows its course, slow and joyful, so Sisera makes solar paint in the present tense, your time is your…, There is no time, There is the space to be filled and that makes Jabin wisely, filling in the spaces with clean and bright colors in a solar and spiritual painting, the color makes the form and vice versa.
