Akram Rahmanzadeh was born in 1962 in Tehran, Iran. After studying with several artists, she went to England in 1985. She studied Fine Art at the Norwich School of Art and at Kent Institute of Art and Design in Canterbury.

Rahmanzadeh finds inspiration in the mundane, day- today activities of people and the spaces they inhabit- an old woman walking down the street, a child with his mother, a look on an aged face.
