Abd A. Masoud – Vita


Born 1963 in Amman, Jordan, living since 1984 in Vienna Austria

1987 Received my Bachelor of Art from Webster University, Vienna.

1989 started working professionally in the field of silk screen printing in this period acquired my first knowledge with graphic design and Typography.

1994 I found the passion for restoring old antique wood sculpture and furniture. Through this work I learned many techniques in this field. Autodidact I learned wood curving, calligraphy and painting. Qualified friends in this field made this effort much easier for me. A particular interest in painting led me to pursue acquiring knowledge, through which I expanded and consequently developed my artistic style.
