Notice:


Hamansutra was born in Tehran, Iran. He moved to New York with his family in 1978 but was educated in Germany. He was introduced to graffiti through the Munich underground scene and formed an artists' group with a streetworker, funded by Munich City Council. He studied graphic design in Munich to develop his style further. Hamansutra funded his studies by working as a DJ at various clubs playing Soul, House, Rap, etc. and by contract graffiti artwork, some of which was published in the book »Graffiti Writing in Munich«. During his graphic design studies he was able to fully unfold his potential in working on the themes of fashion and accessories, where he could successfully synthesize his Persian cultural background with fresh ideas. Hamansutra subsequently worked as a graphic designer for the well known advertising agency Jung von Matt in Hamburg. Work there was mainly based on fashion briefs. Inspired by that he decided to finish at Jung von Matt in order to study fashion design at St. Martins School of Art, London.    [less ^]
