AMIR ZAND (Turkey)

The Art Department | World Tour

Originally from Iran illustrator and concept artist Amir Zand now resides in Istanbul, Turkey.

Amir started out as an illustrator, because he was always passionate about packages and covers. He has created over 50 book covers from indie authors to world class publications such as TOR books, Macmillan and GamesWorkshop’s Black library. He created illustrations for universes such as Warhammer40K, Mortal Engines and DUNE.

In 2017 he made a transition to concept art and entered a whole different industry although he still kept creating book covers as this deep passion was still there.

He worked for clients such as PSYOP, Axis Animation, DreamworksTV, NexusStudio, TitMouse, EddyTV, ReelFX. He is currently working on an unannounced AAA video game at Quantic Dream.

Amir will participate in a panel together with Faraz Shanyar and host Danar Worya about the journey of Middle Eastern artists in the Western creative industry.
