Artist Focus: Kiyarash Zandi
Cartoonist – IRAN
Cartoon could have attracted so many audiences in the society due to the different impression of different people from a single artwork; therefore cartoonist’s performance has a special place. Cartoonists play an important role in creating an artwork and conveying a concept for the improvement of his society.
Kiyarash Zandi, well-known Persian cartoonist who has been working with famous foreign magazines and Gol-Agha magazine is a symbol of creative cartoonist with pure ideas. This artist performs based on his studies and experiences, and demands of his society.
He talks about his art and says: “people’s humanitarian desires shape the society and society develops throughout the time to get closer to the ideal society. I believe that only intellectuals follow this path along with the society”.
Kiyarash believes that a cartoonist can picture obscenities with an acceptable appearance to find a solution in social level. This artist considers his career as his love and ironically suggests to all young artists worldwide to distance from cartoon as soon as possible because no one can change his path once he is in love with cartoon.
