Sahar Haghgoo was born in Rasht in the north of Iran in 1981. She has loved painting and drawing since was a child, working directly from her imagination and dreams. In 2009, she graduated from the University of Tehran with an MA in Illustration, and now she lives and works in London with her partner and her young daughter, who is a constant source of inspiration.
Sahar’s approach to illustration is experimental, and she loves working across different media and trying new techniques. She is a particular fan of calligraphy and designing her own typography. Her ambition as an artist is to be continually changing the way she looks at the world.
When Sahar isn’t illustrating she enjoys cooking, reading, mountain climbing and travelling. In the future, if she’s not too busy with her illustration work, she would love to own a restaurant and serve imaginative dishes from a variety of cuisines.
