Artist Parviz Tanavoli
From his gentle handshake, one would never guess that Parviz Tanavoli’s hands have birthed more than 1,000 sculptures. He is now 75 years old, and his creations (some ceramic, most in bronze, with an occasional painting, too) have made appearances in some of the most prestigious venues in the world.

At a glance, it would be hard to guess that this humble man has earned prestigious awards, accolades and honours such as receiving the Order of Canada, co-founding the Laurier Institution and, most recently, holding the position of Chancellor at Simon Fraser University for six years.
