He was born in 1976 in Teheran / Lives and works in Paris
Hossein is a franco-iranian illustrator from a family of artists. Thanks to his parents, painters-sculptors, botch teachers at the Fine Art School, his playgrounds are often artists studios and drawing lessons even before going to kindergarten. Arriving in Paris at the age of 14, he nevertheless makes scientific studies while going on drawing. His talent in drawing first carries him towards design. He works several years as a designer and then moves on to car design and graphic arts, before turning towards fashion illustration. Follower of the "Less is more" movement in design, he goes on applying this approach to his illustrations by refining his drawings to reach the expression of a feeling, an idea, a look with a minimum of lines, the void thus becoming his better ally.
