The world through the lenses of a cartoonist might be a bit different and more unique. But with a little help, we can all re-discover the inner cartoonist of ourselves.

Bozorgmehr Hosseinpour (4th December 1977) was born in Tehran. He has got familiar with painting world since his childhood through his father was painting. He studied calligraphy, painting, and miniature simultaneously. He created his first caricature when he did painting of his school driver’s face before he even knew anything about caricature. He begins his journey to success by browsing the magazines with his critical thinking and he published a comedy magazine just for his family and called it “Humor With Family” when he was 12. A year after when he was just 13, his works were published in 2 pages on a well-known cartoon magazine. After that he was invited to commence work as professional caricaturist by Kioumars Saberi Foumani, editors of Gol-Agha magazine. He was inspired by Lautrec, Gauguin, and Van Gogh paintings and being inspired by Impressionism got interested in painting and started to study Terhan Azad Univerity for academic education on the subject.
