Masoud Akhavanjam is an Iranian sculptor working in mirror polished stainless steel and bronze. His artworks, both figurative and abstract, are conceived as a commentary on society and deal with paradoxical themes such as good and evil, the power of the mind over brute force and the constant struggle for a harmonic coexistence. His passion for the materiality of objects and in particular stainless steel commenced when he began assisting at his father’s manufacturing company for household appliances.
