Barri Faryad is an exceptionally talented Iranian born London based contemporary artist whose unique and thought-provoking body of work evoke emotions of grandeur.
Providing a fascinating personal insight into her life and work in this exclusive interview feature, Barri talks to Artist Nest about her childhood growing up in Iran during the war and the effect it had on her artistic style and development.
The impact Barri’s art has on the viewer is striking and immediate. Colourful attention grabbing images instantly capture the imagination and entice the viewer into a world of secrets and mysteries through a set of collections primarily based on reflections of an intriguing private life captured in a unique way which can only be fully understood and truly appreciated when studied in-depth.
Barri’s cultural heritage though subtle is evident throughout her body of work with particular emphasis placed on the right to exercise freedom of expression as depicted in her female nude paintings, a subject matter considered provocative and forbidden in her home country.
At the time of publication, Barri Faryad has completed two collection series, Muse and Unspoken with a third ‘Angels’ work in progress. A few of her paintings have also been selected and featured in high-profile group exhibitions organnised by the Society of Women Artists at the prestigious Mall Galleries in London.
