Mohsen Vaziri Moghaddam

Biography from Bonhams Bond Street

A pioneer of Iranian Modern art, Mohsen Vaziri was born in Tehran in 1924. In 1943, he attended the Faculty of Fine Arts in Tehran. He had his first solo art exhibition at the Iran-America Society in 1952. Vaziri left to Europe in 1955 to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Milan where he learned about the western modern and contemporary art movements. In 1956, he had his first exhibition in Italy at the Portonovo Art Gallery in Rome and later that year in Germany at the Die Brucke Gallery in Düsseldorf and the Stenzel Gallery in Munich. In 1957, Mohsen Vaziri's artistic career took a turning as he moved away from figurative painting into non-objective or abstract art. He attended Italian artist Toti Scialoja's classes at the Academy. It was during those six months that Vaziri began exercising the depth of his imagination and experimenting with the use of materials, space, form and composition.
