Alireza Karimi Moghaddam, 1975 | Van Gogh's life story in cartoon illustrations






Cartoonist and illustrator Alireza Karimi Moghaddam was born in Tehran, Iran. He earned a master’s degree in graphic art at Azad University in Iran, and is now based in Lisbon, working with art faculty of the University of Lisbon and the National Society of Fine Arts.
Since his teenage years he has immersed himself in the life and art of Vincent van Gogh🎨.
For the past thirty years his award-winning🎨 cartoons and illustrations have conveyed van Gogh’s life as "a symbol of beauty and love, an inspiration for the future".


Alireza Karimi: "For me, Van Gogh🎨 is not only a painter and a genius artist but a way of life. He is not a frustrated and distressed model but a symbol of love, humanity and altruism".
I understand and propagate it from a different perspective, and on the contrary to a prevailing traditional view, I would like a different Van Gogh to be a Van Gogh for everyone.
My cartoons show that Van Gogh's life was all about beauty and love. It might have had a bitter ending, but it was inspiring for the future".






















Alireza Karimi Moghaddam è nato a Teheran, in Iran. Ha conseguito un master in arte grafica presso l'Università Azad in Iran, ed ora vive a Lisbona, lavorando con la Facoltà d'Arte dell'Università di Lisbona e la Società Nazionale di Belle Arti.
Fin dalla sua adolescenza si è immerso nella vita e nell'arte di Vincent van Gogh.
Negli ultimi trent'anni le sue vignette ed illustrazioni pluripremiate🎨 hanno trasmesso la vita di Van Gogh come "un simbolo di bellezza ed amore, una ispirazione per il futuro".
"Per me", - spiega l’illustratore, - "Van Gogh non è solo un pittore ed un artista geniale, ma un modo di vivere. Non è un modello frustrato ed angosciato, ma un simbolo di amore, umanità ed altruismo".
