- KATOUZIAN MORTEZA :
Morteza Katouzian was born in 1322 A.H. into a middle-class Teheran
family. Tragically, Katouzian lost his father at the age of seven,
leaving him in the care of his mother and elder brother, at the
time a second-year law student. With no formal training, special
tools or encouragement outside of the constant support of his
family, Katouzian passed his free time sketching and painting,
slowly honing his talent in solitude.
- "When I took my paintings
to school, the instructors would refuse to believe they were
my original works," Katouzian joked recently. In 1341 A.H.,
he began work at a local painting workshop, eventually emerging
as one of the unique talents in the contemporary school of Iranian
art. Discussing the role of the artist in the modern world, Katouzian
remarks, "I could never stop painting; my heart is like
a mirror, reflecting the reality of the surrounding world."
