Maziar Boostandoost


I was born in 1982 in Tehran, Iran. I first started painting when I was a little boy and at the age of eleven, I was strongly influenced by realism art . In furtherance of getting ideas about painting, I began take photos using analog camera. I 2005 in order to continue my education , I moved to Florence and started to study industrial design. Educational life style and on the other hand particular society lacks in the new life, helped me feel inspired that realistic ideas in painting can not satisfied my inner senses! 
I've desired to drag images of my new situation and condition and this was not in the power of old stuffs anymore. So camera and it's abilities represented a Major breakthrough for me. 
In 2006, I started digital photography with Canon 350. In the light of the history of painting, photography for me was more than an image or record a moment. I decided to deal with problems, so I continued to do photographic work and studying simultaneously. 
In 2011, I presented my first exhibition in Florence. And that was a moment when I entered to art world as a professional artist.
During these days I've always looked to create a name and style for myself in the world of art. although it was widely seen through my collections..
