This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in Teheran in 1937,  he studied at the College of Fine Arts and the College of Decorative Arts in Teheran and began to exhibit his work early in his career, at the Biennales in Paris (1959-63), Teheran (1960-66), Sao Paulo (1963) and Venice (1964), receiving a number of awards.  His work showed the influence of Iranian Shi`ite folk art beginning in 1959.

He went to live in Paris in 1961 but continued to take a close interest in the development of art in Iran.  At the third Teheran Biennale in 1962, held in the Abyaz Palace in the Gulistan compound, he exhibited canvases that consisted of geometric patterns of squares, triangles and circles, using colors characteristic of religious folk art, and covered with calligraphy to create a distinctive texture.  It was on this occasion that the Iranian art critic Karim Emami first used the word SAQQAKHANA to describe the mood of Zenderoudi's work. 

In works produced in the late 1960s and 1970s, Zenderoudi's interest in the use of calligraphy developed further.  He also executed two series of silkscreen prints for the Koran, published by the Club du Livre in 1972 and 1980.
