Iranian cartoonist to exhibit works in Canadian museum

Iranian cartoonist Behzad Ghafarizadeh will exhibit his works in the Museum of Masters and Artisans in Quebec, Canada.

 

The museum will also showcase cartoons by Russian cartoonist Oleg Dergachov concurrently.

The exhibition features 50 works by the two artists from January 8 until February 8, 2015, Mehr News Agency said.

Ghafarizadeh was born in 1983, and grew up in an art-admiring family. He graduated from Tehran University and received his master's degree in materials engineering. He continued his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at École de technologie supérieure, Université du Québec.

His passion for cartoons began following an encounter with the acclaimed Iranian cartoonist Kambiz Derambakhsh and after receiving a letter from him in 2006.

Ghafarizadeh's works have been showcased at various prestigious international exhibitions. At the 14th edition of the Salon Mercosur International Diogenes Taborda festival held in Argentina, he received the First Mention of the festival's Color Graphic Humor category.
