Maestro Hojjat Shakiba is among the eminent figures in painting, photography and graphic art in Iran. With unparallel skill in the principles of painting, he has initiated a novel style in the history of this art and immortalized his name.
Maestro Shakiba was born in 1949 in the city of Gurgan. He inherited his artistic talent from his father Mirza Mahmud who was a photographer, a painter and a calligrapher.
Shakiba’s patience became manifest when he started carefully developing and coloring the photos in his father’s studio.
During childhood, he showed such great interest in painting that in young days he sought to be more involved in the world of art. Under the encouragement of his family and friends, he attended the Boys’ Art School in Tehran, learned enormously from such masters as Gholam Hussein Nami, Mohsen Vaziri Moghaddam and Moghimi, the then great miniaturist and immediately entered the Faculty of Fine Arts of Tehran University.
