Kambiz Sabri

Kambiz Sabri

Born April 18, 1967, Kashan Iran

Kambiz Sabri was born on April 18, 1967 in Kashan and grew up in Shahroud. He became familiar with the arts during his childhood at the "Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults", where he learned painting. However, the years of his youth however did not prove prosperous ones for the arts in general in the country. The unique and diverse nature surrounding Shahrood became a source of much inspiration for Kambiz in the arts during these years and the individual who proved most influential during this period was his sports instructor, Mr. Hossein Karimi. Kambiz was highly interested in medicine, but did not succeed in getting accepted for medical sciences. Moving to Tehran, he subsequently decided not to continue his further education.

After a while he became acquainted with Abdolhossein Pazouki, a university professor in architecture, who encouraged Kambiz to work in architectural firms. During this period, Kambiz became once again aware of his own artistic talents and was encouraged to participate in the entrance exams for the arts, resulting in acceptance with top ranking into the Department of Sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Tehran. In addition to classes on his own subject, he attended classes in architecture, graphics and industrial design.

Coinciding with his graduation in 2001, his entry into the Third Sculpture Biennial of Iran was awarded the special jury prize as the top entry and was consequently purchased for the main archive of the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Arts.
He has continued his career as a sculptor since 2001 and has participated in various art exhibitions. His professional career includes teaching in art faculties, designing award statuettes for various festivals, interior design and design and management of art exhibitions, including acting as the coordinator for the Iran pavilion in the 51st Venice Biennial. During the years 2004 to 2006 Kambiz completed a master’s degree in graphics.

At present he continues his artistic activities full-time, accompanied with his wife who is also a sculptor.
