Biography

1943-2009

Born in 1944, journalist, sculptor, painter, and translator Mehdi Sahabi was a “cultural intellectual,” in the words of art scholar and writer Javad Mojabi, “one who other than his field of specialization had influenced the collective fate of a country, opening the way for the people to benefit from new ideas and thoughts.” Having left Iran in 1967 to study film in Italy, Mehdi Sahabi eventually enrolled in Rome University of Fine Arts to become a painter only to leave that unfinished as well. In 1968 he traveled to France and met his wife, Evelyn, with whom he had three children.
