About Bijan


Growing up in Teheran, a cultural center for poets, scholars, art and architecture, Bijan recognized early in life that he had been given a gift and decided to put it towards a positive and responsible use. At 27 he left for England where he developed a more diverse understanding of the arts.

Now residing in southern California, Bijan finds pleasure in the ability to express his artistic visions through graphic design, photography, illustration, paintings, calligraphy, sculpture, murals and computer art. Check out more of his work at
