Mostafa Akhavass

Mostafa Akhavass

Born in 1950, Mostafa began painting as a child, and throughout his youth cultivated the original techniques that lay the foundation of his career and passion for art.

After graduating from art school, he went on to study painting, calligraphy, and gilding (decorative painting, using gold and color, applied to the margin of paintings or calligraphy) during the late 1970s and early 80s from several well-known masters in Tehran, including, Mohammad Ali Zaviyeh (Iranian miniature), Abdollah Bagheri (gilding or tazheeb), and Gholamhossein Amirkhani (calligraphy). Mostafa had a keen ability to assimilate these masters’ acute attention to form, which he incorporated into his own unique artistic voice.

He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the Iranian Ministry of Art, and he is the winner of the 2014 Asia’s Living Treasures Award. Mostafa Akhavass’s artwork can be found in a myriad of public, private art collections, and museums of art in Iran and abroad, and has appeared in numerous exhibitions worldwide. He currently resides and continues his art works in Tehran, Iran and San Francisco, California, USA.
