‘When art gets as rancid as a Cattelan banana, we literally need to revert back to the Core, a radical switch to a true Zeitgeist.’ FirouzFarmanFarmaian

Janet Rady has been FarmanFarmaian’s agent since 2014 and has widely collaborated on exhibitions, art-talks and catalog introductions, curating shows such as the 2016 NYC Memory-Future / Future Memory exhibit. NAVA Contemporary's Nicole Archibeque & Valerie Altahawi have been working with Firouz in the US since 2015 engaging his work nation-wide on the RH Contemporary Art Program. Nouvelle Vague Artspaces as an artist-run gallery proposes a nomadic radical vision with eyes set on the future.

Firouz FarmanFarmaian

History and memory inform the work of Persian-born artist Firouz FarmanFarmaian, whose lifetime of living in exile in Paris, France profoundly influenced both his creative practice and individual character. "It is circumstance that ultimately shapes lives", says the artist, whose work seeks to actively engage in a dialogue with the past. As such, his compositions possess a vivacious and spontaneous energy, as well as a deeply symbolic quality, which speaks to a multiplicity of currents in politics, art and philosophy.

Rooted in Persian lore, and focused on themes of nature, architectonics and the interplay between realism and abstraction, FarmanFarmaian's diverse body of work is united by common motifs of movement and texture. The raw and visceral emotion of his pieces is tempered by their material properties, which are strongly rooted in a resolute emphasis on craftsmanship. Each work is the result of careful contemplation of the techniques and tools that will achieve a singular aesthetic and emotional intention. These in turn are deftly combined to create a unique visual rhythm across a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, film and music.

​Lives and works in between Marbella and Marrakech. His works figure in the collections of Queen Farah Diba, Mo Afkhami, Christine Amanpour and Antonio Banderas to name a few.
