Aydin Aghdashloo

PowerPoint Presentation:

After the Iranian revolution of 1979, Aghdashloo lost both his official jobs and was under threat by Khomeini's regime and was barred from leaving Iran for over 10 years, until 1989. He had to adjust himself to the new strict rules imposed by the government to control and Islamicize arts and culture. Before being allowed to teach in Iranian universities in 1981, he started his private art classes which he still continues to teach, besides lecturing in a number of universities in Iran. Aydin Aghdashloo, born 1940, is an Iranian painter, author, art critic, art historian and graphic designer. He currently lives in Tehran and lectures in different Iranian Universities besides his professional work. His father was an engineer and the Interior Minister in Azerbaijan Democratic Republic between 1919 and 1920. After the invasion of Azerbaijan by the Soviet Red Army in 1920, he had to flee Baku, Azerbaijan and take refuge in Tabriz, Iran. To avoid identification by the Soviet spies in Iran, he changed his last name from Hajiev to Aghdashloo and moved to Tehran when Aghdashloo was 5 years old. Aydin Aghdashloo started selling his paintings from the age of 14, two years after his father's death as a result of kidney complications. Aghdashloo was appointed by the Shahbanu (Empress) of Iran, Farah Pahlavi, as the "Head of Artistic Affairs of Shahbanu's Special Bureau". His responsibilities included purchase of artworks from contemporary artists such as Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet for the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art. He also helped establish the Reza Abbasi Museum in Tehran in 1977 and was the head of the museum until 1979.
