Introduction
Zenderoudi went to the College of Fine Arts and the College of Decorative Arts in Tehran and has had work exhibited in various parts of the world including Paris (1959-1563), Tehran (1960-1966), Sao Paulo (1963), and Venice (1964). The influence of Iranian Shi'ite folk art was seen in his exhibition at the Third Tehrān Biennale; the works were made up of geometric shapes and decorated with calligraphy. In fact, the term Saqqakhana was first used by the Iranian critic Karim Emami to describe Zenderoudi's art. Zenderoudi's interest in calligraphy was developed further in his works of the late 1960s and 1970s.
