Born in Qazvin, Iran, in 1944, Koorosh Shishegaran is
considered one of the most expressive and emotive artists of
the contemporary Iranian art movement.

In a career spanning six decades, he has established himself as
an artist of great discipline, social awareness and manual skill,
working in a wide array of different media, from graphic design
to painting, photography and furniture design. Drawing
inspiration from Iranian visual culture, Shishegaran is best
known for his scribble line abstract paintings (Khat-khatis).
These dynamic colourful lines, depicting the contemporary
human condition, enabled the artist to find a style and language
expressive of the modern era.

With contributions from leading experts in the field and
featuring over 300 colour plates, Koorosh Shishegaran: The Art
of Altruism brings together the life and works of the artist for the
first time, showcasing his various artistic phases and outlining
his progressive approach to art-making and distribution.
