About the Artist:
“Bijan J. Bijan was born in Tehran, Iran in 1936 as Bijan Jazai Shokatfard. He came to United State in the spring of 1959, to become a “Doctor,” fulfilling his mother’s wishes. Medicine was not his calling, but art was. No one knew that at the time except Bijan himself. In 1972, he became an American citizen. Bijan, a major force in the mid-century metal art movement and considered by many to be “The Father of Metal Sculpture.” Bijan has been largely unappreciated for years, perhaps this is due to the lack of information available about this genius. Even with the lack of information, Bijan’s collectors love his works and their ranks are growing.“
