Valentine's Day has just passed, but our love for 3D is certainly not bound to a specific day of the year. For our February 2022 ArtWanted! feature, we have successfully courted Hamed Zand, and he graciously gifted us some eye candy, which we are more than happy to share with you!
Hamed Zand is yet another talented artist from the thriving 3D community in Iran. Based in Urmia, the 33-year-old has a degree in architecture, with his fascination for the field dating back to his adolescence, when he first laid eyes upon architectural photography. His passion eventually led him to 3D software, and he did his first archviz job in 2014. Today, Hamed mostly works with 3ds Max, Maya, and AutoCAD.
In 2018, Hamed joined forces with his friends Aqil Sayyah and Sheida Lotfi to found Xavi Studio. Initially, with little money and lackluster equipment at their disposal, the three of them have been working tirelessly to consolidate the company. Although Hamed tells us they still struggle with the occasional client’s lack of financial commitment, Xavi Studio is slowly but surely making a name for itself in architectural visualization and object/product modeling.
For his interior design work, Hamed prefers a minimal and modern style, with special emphasis on soft lighting and dark, more subdued color palettes.
Hamed cites this 'Snow Hut' as his favorite project.
Hamed is well versed in object modeling, evident by this modification of these pixel pomegranates…
…or his renderings of classic sports cars, like this Porsche 911.

Hamed's fondness for nature can be regularly seen in his exterior environments. Check out this forest in the West-Azerbaijan region of Iran.
Hamed, thank you so much for taking the time. We wish you all the best in the future!
