Sahand Hesamiyan

Sahand Hesamiyan, born in 1977 in Tehran, holds a Bachelor of Sculpture from the Tehran University and currently lives and works in Tehran. 

The works of Sahand Hesamiyan are primarily interactive. They are clearly derived from Islamic architecture, and in many occasions this intense relationship goes beyond the mere reflection and repetition of the forms and influences the titles of the pieces and the brief descriptions often accompanying them.
