Brief Biography Masoud Akhavanjam

Born in 1969 in Tehran, Iran, Masoud Akhavanjam was sent to Boarding School in Marburg Germany, at the age of 14. In 1989 Akhavanjam moved to the United States and attended the George Washington University, receiving a degree in Biology in 1995. In 2005 he received an Executive MBA degree from the Kempten University of Applied Science in Germany. From 1997 to 2011 Akhavanjam managed the Design Department at his family’s Iranian manufacturing company for household appliances. During his high school years he took a sculpture class to make ceramic sculptures. He made hundreds in the 80's, some of which were sold. Later with the knowledge he had gained through the manufacturing and the interest he always had in sculpture, he established his own workshop, making his first bronze sculpture in 2011.
