Iranian Make-up Innovator Dies at 65
Iranian Make-up Innovator Dies at 65

Posted: Wednesday May 14, 2008

Iranian movie make-up artist Farhang Moayyeri died May 10 in Tehran of cardiac arrest. He was 65 and had already fought a long battle with lung cancer, the Iran State News Agency reported.  

Moayyeri created several make-up designs and prosthetics for Iranian theater, television and film. He is best known for creating make-up for the films of Bahram Beizai, Mas'ud Kimiai and other well-known Iranian directors.

According to the ISNA, Moayyeri was born in 1943 and began his career acting on The Brick and the Mirror (1965), then tried directing before entering the make-up industry in 1978. He created the make-up for Bashou, the Little Stranger (1986), Maybe Some Other Time (1988), Killing Mad Dogs (2001) and other films.
Mohsen Maleki, head of the Iranian Association of Make-Up Designers, expressed sorrow over Moayyeri’s death and described him as the father of modern Iranian make-up design. Moayyeri was honored by the association in 2006 for his efforts to train new generations of artists in Iran's film industry.
