    Shilla Shakoori is an artist from Iran who is based in Los Angeles.  Shakoori attempts to discover and re-discover the truth in what she experiences daily and uses her art as a medium that can most potently reveal that truth.  Her art finds much strength and inspiration through music and poetry of artists she finds struggling (past and present) in the same truth-seeking journey: Chopin, Mahalia Jackson, Forough Farrokhzad, Rumi, James Baldwin and Mahmoud Darwish are a few of the artists whose influence on Shakoori are dominant.
