"How do your drawings relate to people?" Bidjan Assadipour was once asked. "This relationship is like that between people and their photographs. The difference is that pictures display people's physical appearance while drawings present their inner feelings as well."

"I was born in Anzali in 1946. When I was six years old, we moved to Tehran where I continued my education until graduating from Tehran University. My career as an artist began when I started submitting satirical writings to Towfiq magazine. Later I continued to collaborate with Towfiq as a member of its editorial board. This lasted until 1969 when the journal was closed down. Since then, I have been drawing as well as writing."

The following are samples of Assadipour's drawings from 6 & eight (collection of 14 postcards) and Calligraphy, both published by Rowzan in New Jersey ... go to first drawing
