The journey of Bahram Hajou to Münster in Germany, where he lives, was complicated. During the turbulent 1970s he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bagdad. From there he travelled to East Berlin via Prague and then to West Berlin and eventually to Münster. There he began to study archaeology in 1976 and then pursued his studies in fine art. In 1987 he graduated from the Academy in Düsseldorf, a Münster branch of the Academy. He has worked as a freelance artist since 1989.
