Khak Gallery Kambiz Sabri April May 2012 A House On The Other Side Of The Night 02

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.

Overview and HistoryTehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."Getting ThereMehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.TransportationTehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.People and CultureMore than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.Things to do, RecommendationsTake the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.Tehran is also full of museums such as:the Contemporary Art Museumthe Abghine Musuem (glass works)the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museumthe museum of carpets (!!!)Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniaturesand most stunning of all,the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.Text by Steve Smith.
