Behzad Bozorgi

Behzad bozorgi (born September 16, 1972) is a painter and poet. He was born into an already artistic family, including his father, a well-known poet, and started painting as an artistic activity from childhood. Given his family inclination to poetry and literature and also his familiarity with poets such as Hafiz, Sa'adi, Molana (Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi), etc, he was attracted to Iranian painting and Persian Miniature (which is called Negargari). He started his professional work in 1983 with his master Mohammad Tajvidi. Later on he used the help of the great masters such as Mohammad Bagher Aghamiri, Ali Asghar Tajvidi and Alijan Alijanpour.
During the mentioned period with these great masters he got familiar with all the Iranian Painting styles, including Persian Miniature, Gol-O-Morgh (literally the flower and the bird), Tazhib, Tash'ir, Ghahve- Khaneh Painting (literally coffee shop painting) and Qajar Painting and has followed the related ancients works. Moreover, having done a number of studies on Kufic, he adopted a novel perspective for this kind of handwriting and combined it with Persian Handwriting style and Persian traditional colours and therefore has presented a new form of Calligraphy.
Besides creating such artistic works in Miniature and Calligraphy, today he is also active in the fields of Patina and Interior Design.
