About Artist:
Behzad Shishegaran, born in 1953 into an immigrant family in Tehran, is a painter, designer, graphic artist, and advocate for social art. Initially exposed to technical and industrial intricacies through his industrialist father, Shishegaran's deeper engagement with the world of art was catalyzed by his older brother, Koorosh Shishegaran. He pursued his artistic education at the Tehran Academy of Fine Arts under the guidance of notable artists such as Mohammad Ebrahim Jafari, Ali Qahari, and Mahmoud Farshchian. Amidst the Iranian Revolution in 1979, he enrolled in the Faculty of Decorative Arts, now known as the University of Art, studying graphic design and creating politically charged posters that became integral to his artistic portfolio.

Following the Iran-Iraq war, Shishegaran resumed his artistic pursuits, showcasing his first solo exhibition in 1989 with portraits of Gholamreza Takhti. He introduced a unique approach to replicating his work, exploring diverse subjects such as human figures and nature. Embracing technological advancements like Photoshop, he seamlessly integrated traditional drawing techniques with digital manipulation, showcasing a blend of abstraction and realism in his visual works. Shishegaran's artistic journey spans over three decades, marked by numerous solo exhibitions, participation in group exhibitions, teaching endeavors, authorship, and active involvement in the Iranian Painters Association. His contributions to art were further acknowledged with accolades like winning the first Biennial of Iranian Painters in 1991 and the inclusion of his works in the Tehran auction in 2014.
