Artist's Biography

Mohammed Djazmi

Mohammed Djazmi was born in North-East of Iran in 1948. He first studied painting under his father’s tutelage before moving to Tehran where he attended the city’s University of Arts, reading interior architecture, completing his studies in 1972.

In 1984 he came to Britain with his wife, Nahid and his sons, Mani and Erfan. Since he has been living in Cambridge he has developed an awareness of the subtleties of colour and light in the East Anglian landscape. He has been experimenting with his use of colour and is particularly intrigued by the contrast offered by the detail and delicacy of local buildings set against the expanse of sky.

The high respect and regard with which Mohammed Djazmi is held by his clients both in England and abroad is great. Clients from countries including Japan, the United States and Australia have bought his paintings.

Visitors to the Cambridge Drawing Society’s annual exhibition, in both 1998 and 1999, voted Mohammed most popular artist.

In May and June of 1998, Mohammed was selected to represent Cambridgeshire through his local BBC radio station, Radio Cambridgeshire, on a series of national BBC television trailers where he displayed his ‘Fen Landscape’ painting.
