Bahman Borojeni

Bahman Borojeni was born in 1942. He trained at Tehran University of Art, when he won first prize for engraving at the 1964 Tehran Biennale. Jacques Lassaigne (director of the Paris Museum of Modern Art) offered him a grant to participate in the Paris Biennale. In 1972, he won first prize for painting at the Iranian Contemporary Art Exhibition and, in 1976, received a commission for a monumental fresco for the lobby of the Ministry of Agriculture in Tehran. He taught painting at Tehran University of Art from 1970 to 1990. In 1990, he relocated to Paris to dedicate himself exclusively to painting.
His style, both mystical and contemporary, sublimates everyday life, transforming it into almost calligraphic pictorial composition.
During his career so far, Bahman Borojeni has had more than 110 solo and group exhibitions internationally, including Iran, France, Japan, Norway, Switzerland and the United States. His works can be found in public and pri- vate collections and more recently, his work has been sold at a number of auctions, including Christie’s.
