Ali Akbar Sadeghi (Iranian Painter, born 1937)


Ali Akbar Sadeghi (born 1937) a graduate of the College of Art, University of Tehran, is one of the most prolific and successful Iranian painters and artists. He began to teach painting in high school in the 1950s, before entering the university in 1958. His early works were with watercolor, but as of 1959, soon after entering college, he began oil painting and drawing. He initiated a special style in Persian painting, influenced by Coffee House painting, iconography, and traditional Iranian portrait painting, following the Qajar tradition – a mixture of a kind of surrealism, influenced by the art of stained glass. He did his early works in graphics and illustration. He is among the first individuals involved in the Center for the Intellectual Development of Children and the Youth, and was among the founders of the Film Animation department of this institute. Aside from illustration, he has published a few books for the Center for the Development of Children and the Youth, and has made a few successful films by using his special style in painting.
