Aziz Anzabi

Aziz Anzabi is currently working to bring sculpture and painting together as one adding a new continuity to potential collections. Originating from Iran, Aziz's work has sold worldwide and has a particularly strong following in the United States. The market in the UK to Aziz is full of untapped potential for him as a Western Artist and as such is experimenting with a range of styles.
His work has been displayed and purchased worldwide and some of his work can be viewed at the Tehran Museum. In addition, his work has appeared on National Stamps and he has written film scripts in the Middle East. Aziz is also an academic and has written and produced books on the subjects of art as well as mathematics and previously lectured as a professor at Tehran University.
Anzabi's work is heavily influenced by Mahmoud Farschian, evidence of which can be seen in the lines and textures of his work - both painting and sculpture. More recently Anzabi has turned his focus to sculpture of which his 'Angels' piece was cited for a fine art commendation in the States. Cane and Abel is another fine example of ability to depict emotion and strength in the characterisation of his work. In another vein, Anzabi's reconstruction of the Dali ethos is just coming through in his work.
Anzabi's style and influences are diverse and whilst some of his artwork is reminiscent of Dali, other pieces have elements of cubism, realism,impressionism or more interestingly a juxtaposition of more than one style therein inventing a whole new style of his own

déjà vu “déjà vu”

The painting déjà vu created by Aziz Anzabi is part of the vulnerable series which explains war and its effects. The near dried flower shows how the war affects people and the destruction it brings. The dark colours used in the painting all reflect how war destroys and hurts people whether they are directly fighting or not .The women are a symbol of resistance and supporting of life but also can be easily hurt as they are vulnerable. The tired soldiers can reflect the uselessness of war and how it brings nothing but tiredness, destruction, hatred and death. The soldier without a leg who is trying to break the door shows how unproductive war is except of producing more war.
