A modern multi-cultural woman, the founder of ALANGOO, grew up in Tehran. Along with a group of friends, she was able to set up underground fashion shows and exhibitions to sell her avant-garde handmade apparel and home décor in the capital city of Tehran. Although very successful, the group had no way of introducing their designs to the outside world.
Upon graduating from Azad University of Art and Architecture in Tehran she moved to New York in 2002, where she fell head over heels in love with the Big Apple. While missing the support of her friends in Tehran and on the verge of losing confidence in her crafts, she decided to embark on a new career path. She studied at New York University and earned a Masters degree in Graphic Communications Management and Technology which lead her to enter the world of online media. After working for some New York and Boston top ad agencies, she decided to create this platform as a way to give a voice to her friends, as well as other underground artists. ALANGOO is her brainchild.
ALANGOO.com does not present or showcase fine art such as films and paintings on this platform.
