Iranian Cartoonist in Quebec

The Museum of Masters and Artisans in Quebec, Canada, is to feature cartoons by Iranian cartoonist Behzad Ghafarizadeh and Russian cartoonist Oleg Dergachov.
The museum will showcase cartoons by the two artists from January 8 to February 8, 2015. The exhibition features 50 works by the artists titled ‘Artoon’, MNA reported.
Ghafarizadeh was born in 1983 and grew up in an art-loving family. He graduated from the University of Tehran and received his master’s degree in materials engineering. He continued his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Quebec.
His passion for cartoons started when he met the acclaimed Iranian cartoonist Kambiz Derambakhsh and after receiving a letter from him in 2006. Ghafarizadeh’s works have already been showcased at various prestigious international exhibitions and have received several awards.
At the 14th edition of the Salon Mercosur International Diogenes Taborda festival in Argentina, Ghafarizadeh received the 1st Mention of the festival’s Color Graphic Humor category.
