Prominent Iranian cartoonists Masoud Shojaei’s works have been showcased at the exhibition of the Salon of Antiwar Cartoons festival in Serbia.
The exhibition annually displays the selected works of the top winner of previous edition of the festival.
While Shojaei had scooped the top award of last year’s festival, the year’s show exhibited his 40 selected works.
“Shojaei-Tabatabai’s cartoon depicts that war is really devastating and leads everything towards darkness,” the director of the exhibition, Miodrag Stojilovic, had said during the award ceremony of the 2013 festival.
Born in 1964, Shojaei Tabatabaei is the current director of Iran’s House of Cartoon and a member of the Asian-Pacific Animation and Comics Association.
Shojaei has judged nearly 20 cartoon festivals, including the Aydin Dogan (Turkey, 2005), Guangxi International Cartoon Contest (China, 2007 and 2008), Red Man International Cartoon and Humor Contest (China, 2010) and the 36rd International Piracicaba Cartoon Contest (Brazil, 2009).
He also served on the jury of Turkey’s 5th edition of Don Quixote Cartoon Contest in 2013.
He received numerous national and international awards including the Special Award of China’s 2005 Peace Cup International Cartoon and the first prize of Syria Cartoon contest in 2006.
