Beroep en titles:
As a professional sculptor, I excel at public sculptures. I’ve been contracted by national and local
governments, museums, international organizations such as the United Nations as well as by
private investors. Many of my commissions adorn streets, parks and public buildings in Iran,
Saudi Arabia, United Arabic Emerats, Kuweit and various other Middle Eastern countries. What
my eyes and heart see, my hands create. I work with basically any material: bronze, wood, stone,
iron, perspex, glass… even food. I add a new dimension to Persian art through combining
traditional Iranian techniques with my newly found artistic freedom.
I hold a patent for an innovative wood and iron sculpting technique ‘Raz’, which I developed and
which is officially approved by the Iranian Government. My style was published and honored in
professional journals and other media.
My interest in history has led me to also specialize in restoring historical art. I have an extensive
track record of restored art pieces such as ancient books and sculptures. I’ve masterd several
historical techniques, some dating back over 3000 years. I’m currently developing and mastering
‘Azingari': a new restoration technique to restore ancient art for which the development technique
is no longer known ­ it has been lost for over 1700 years.
I have written several books on fine arts and sculpturing and taught in various higher institutions in
Iran, expanding and promoting the Iranian art and culture.
