FIROUZ FARMAN-FARMAIAN

Firouz Farman-Farmaian was born in Tehran, Iran and lived there until fleeing to Paris to escape the Islamic Revolution. He went on to study Architecture and Visual Arts, which was the beginning of his career as a multi-disciplinarian artist.


Firouz employs a range of media which includes paint, print, sculpture, film and even music, and are often presented as installations or performances. They are intended as momentary meditations on the energy and the motivation of the visible world. Common themes found in his works can range from nature to architectonics and the play between realism and abstraction, but each one is an instinctive moment of emotional and intellectual energy.
