Mojan Mozaffari was born and raised in Tehran, Iran. She was expected to be married off to an approved suitor as soon as she became of age. Instead, she chose to go to art school, and chose her own husband. All this did not sit too well with the family. If not rebellious enough, she started producing avant-garde, anti-war works (during Iran-Iraq war), and artwork that protested a lack of equal rights for women in Iran’s divorce laws. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Art from Tehran University, had many successful presentations, and won a number of awards, during and after her course of studies. The government, however, was not happy with the essence of her message. After a forty-day stint at Tehran’s infamous Evin prison, Mozaffari left Iran in 2011. She currently lives and works in California.
