Fariba Rahnavard was born in 1984 in Isfahan, Iran. She lived, and studied chemistry, forced by her father, in Isfahan until 2010, then she moved to Tehran, the capital. Her passion for art started at an early age and was active in oil painting in Realism style until she decided to pursue her art academically. She started to become inspired by enrolling in Fine Art University of Central Tehran in lately 2012, and began to paint in a different way. Studying art allowed Fariba to gain inspiration from different wide range of masters, and this time she expressed her concepts in Modern style by collage technique.
Fariba Rahnavard's work reveals a complelling fusion between visual harmony and unconventional storytelling. In her Antigravity series, for example, the viewers are invited to explore the liminal area in which texture and language merge together into a coherent harmony. While exhibiting a captivating vibrancy, her paintings seem to reject an explicit explanatory strategy. Rather, she seems to offer to the viewer a key to find personal interpretations to the feelings that she conveys into her collages.
Fariba's spirituality impacts (and is) her art, and she wishes to translate her connection to this internal energy onto every canvas by telling a story with color, shape, and figures. Every stroke is a manifestation of her deep rooted spirituality and emotion.
Over these years Fariba's works has been showcased in several occasions, including her recent show at the Montgomery College, USA; morover, in Florence International (Polis & Art) biennial, Italy. Currently, she works from her studio in Tehran in Iran.
