Biography, Age & Ethnicity
Toni Gabriel Mahfud was born on 2 December 1994 in Hamburg, Germany, into a rather artistically inclined family. His parents are originally from Syria, so he is of Syrian descent. He has shared some pictures of himself and his mother with us.
Mahfud had a natural talent and interest in creative art and model making. However, he never completed professional training at that time. He also never participated in any modeling training, but he is a prodigy in both areas.
As a child, he drew the sketches of his favorite cartoon characters on blank paper. Given his excellent academic performance at school, it seemed quite possible to enter the arts as a career.
Toni Mahfud has a brother he grew up with. His only brother Jan Mahfud seems to be very close to him, as both siblings share a very close bond and exchange information via social media.
Building a Career in Fine Arts and Photography
Thanks to the rise of social media fame, which consumed the interests of young people, Toni Mahfud used them to his advantage shortly before his graduation in 2011 to promote his works of art. He began by publishing pencil-drawn artwork and photos of his chiseled figure so that the world could see and appreciate them. With every year that passed, he gained fame beyond Germany.
His self-promotion paid off and several models offer from top agencies like Tommy Hilfiger and Givenchy began to decline. Mahfud appeared in some of Hilfiger’s advertisements and modeled for top designers during the Fashion Weeks in Europe.
His popularity eventually spread to the alleys of Hollywood, where his portraits of Adele, Channing Tatum, and Angelina Jolie from her film Maleficent were widely distributed. He was signed to the modeling agency IMG and worked with them on advertising campaigns for brands such as Tigha, Nike, Hugo Boss, Adidas, and G-Star Raw.
Mahfud is a multi-talented personality and is currently receiving a number of actor offers for American and German films, although it is not clear whether he has accepted one.
The talented star wants to maintain a purely artistic background and says he will try everything to become a respected and famous artist. He will travel a lot and earn a considerable amount of money with his newfound career.
He is currently working on a shooting project with Mariano Di Vaio, a famous Italian blogger, and both seem to be quite a double problem indeed. So far, Mahfud hasn’t been caught up in any major controversies.
His net worth and salary are not yet known, but the young man is obviously gearing up for future asset inflows.
Who is Toni Mahfud’s Girlfriend or is he Gay?
Ladies who have a crush on Mahfud must be relieved to know that their lump is heterosexual but discreet to his family and love life. A few photos of him and various girls have been seen on the internet (which is typical for a male model), but one is certainly more likely to appear on the internet than the others.
The artist has shared several photos/self-portraits of himself and his girlfriend Ruhama Negassi. Both have participated together informal events, including the presentation of the “GQ Men of the Year” award at the Komische Oper. Berlin in 2017.
