Ghasem Hajizadeh (orn April 1, 1947; Lahijan, Iran) is an Iranian–French painter and a pioneering Pop art figure in contemporary Iranian art.
Hajizadeh was born in 1947 in Lahijan, north of Iran. He received his diploma in arts from Tehran High School of Fine Arts in 1967 and soon after started his art career. During his early years, Hajizadeh's works were mostly abstract. However, he changed his style and concentrated on figurative art. During the 1960s and early 1970s, he was encouraged him to pursue pop art movement, which was thriving in the United States. In 1972, Hajizadeh participated in the first art exhibition, held by Iran–America Society.
While he held several solo and group exhibitions inside and outside post-revolution Iran, after establishment of the Islamic Republic, he could no longer run any public exhibitions for his work. In 1986, he fled to France, living and working in Paris. During his career in arts, his works have been shown in galleries and museum around the world. More on Ghasem Hajizadeh
