Born the eldest son of a father who was a commercial artist and a mother who was a drawing teacher, so naturally Kamran Azim refused to grow up to be a painter. However, he couldn't deny his aptitude for the arts and graduated from the Delhi College of Art as an applied artist in 2002.
During his brief stint in advertising he executed various projects for agencies like Mudra and McCann Erickson, while simultaneously indulging in painting. But visual effects in Hollywood blockbusters kept him mesmerized and he went on to explore the 3D world. The canvas and brush were soon left behind. Before he could finish the 3D animation course he enrolled with, in Delhi, he landed a job in one of the most respected animation companies in Mumbai, Maya Entertainment. After working for about five years in Mumbai, he moved to international waters securing a post-graduate diploma in animation from the Media Design School, New Zealand in 2010.
After pursuing the digital canvas for more than a decade and mastering it, he finally gave into his love for the original canvas and found his way back to the beginning.
