Bahman Borojeni is an Iranian Painter who was born in 1942. A student of Hazrat Shah Maghsoud and Hazrat Nader Shah Angha, he did his studies based on multiple artistic domains: painting, graphics, architecture, sculpture, and a doctorate in archeology. His principal professors were Hanibal Alkhas and Yvan Gerard.  Borojeni was also university professor for twenty years and director of the Beaux Arts of Tehran from 1979 to 1981.

Today, Bahman currently maintains a studio and gallery in Montmartre, France. Maintaining his reserve and discreet style, Bahman does work that seems in constant graphic evolution. One can see him work, ruthless and free, at the Place du Tertre; here he has dreamt and worked at a place that fits him like a glove. His attitude of "grand seigneur" and graciousness form a contrast to the usual bitter, merchants that surround him. 

Bahman Borojeni appears more and more like a true lyricist; the techniques, used during his first classic period are the foundation for later works that have been described as "hauntedly enchanting" where matter vibrates and is given density and illumination.

“His work is an ode to light, to the sense, to life, all seriously celebrated with grace and lightness; his works are a melancholic call to the joy of seeing, of living and creating a secret compartment within the fragility of things.” J.M. Gabert.

With more than one hundred and ten shows to his name, Borojeni has exhibited in such countries as Iran, France, Norway, United States and Japan.
