I am Ali RostamKalaee, born in 1984 in Tehran. As a teenager, I was fascinated by art and literature. But for some reasons, in 2002, I started my university education in the field of pharmacy, and in 2012, I succeeded in obtaining a Doctorate Degree in Pharmacology.
During my university years, like many others the contradictions that affected the shredded Iranian society, injured me badly and after my divorce from my first wife, I found myself unable to live.
In those days and circumstances, a sudden desire led me to paint, and I got involved with painting and photography in a crazy way and since then, I haven't passed a day without painting. It was about six years ago, and in those six years and before that, I had no formal education in painting. I pursued painting as a self-taught artist until today, while I feel that I have something to say in the field of visual arts.
In 2019, I participated in my first group painting exhibition and continue to present my artworks worldwide
