Azim Azarkheil

Biography

My name is Azim Azarkheil, a sculptor, graduated from the faculty of fine arts of the University of Tehran. I was born on April 29, 1975 and spent most of my childhood, apart from attending school, in the Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults, which is the only organization to discover the talents and to blossom creativity in the fields of art. I had the chance to know about clay and sculpture at the same place when I was five years old and I have been engaged professionally in this field for about twenty years.

Nature has always been my inspiration to create works of sculpture. Good vision and audition induce me different ideas and astonishing interpretations that it is the source of pure and avant-garde artworks for me. Historical fictions and conceptual words like freedom, love, war, peace, life and family and so on are also another source of ideas and creativity in my works. In this big world with different people and a myriad of minds, I let my soul and mind fly free to attract what is seeping into my life. The great truth of my life is to understand in the language of creation.
