Mazyar Maleki

I was born in 1960 in Tehran, Iran. At 15 I moved to Kansas City where I finished high school and in 1984 graduated from University of Kansas studying Architecture and sculpture. I moved to Los Angeles, and in 1989 obtained my Architectural License, and established my own practice. My work consisted of telecom facilities, high end corporate office interiors and retail projects. In 2007 I moved to Iran to spend time with my family, and devote full time to painting and sculpture.

Ever since school years I have always maintained a shop or studio to make what ever I wanted from paintings and sculpture to furniture and industrial equipment. My plans are to relocate my life in 2020 and expand my work to create an art incubator.
