About this item

Born in Qazvin, Iran, in 1944, Koorosh Shishegaran is considered one of the most expressive and emotive artists of the contemporary Iranian art movement. He received a BFA in Interior Design at the University of Tehran and has since participated widely in solo and group exhibitions in the region and internationally. Best known for his political posters and abstract linear oil paintings, Shishegaran's work testifies to a wide array of experiments on different media and a range of approaches.

With essays and contributions from leading experts in the field and featuring over three hundred plates, this collection will bring together the life and work of Shishegaran for the first time, highlighting the artists progressive approach, which merged Persian traditional and Western modern art.
