Farhad Moshiri was born in Shiraz and currently lives in Tehran, Iran.He studied art and filmmaking at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts).He first rose to international acclaim, with his jar series of paintings followed by a series of highly textured works incorporating both calligraphy and numerical abdjad; an ancient Arabic clerical code, correlating letters and numerals.Moshiri has since been constantly pushing his materials, using cake icing dispensers, Swarovski crystals, and knives to make paintings that incorporate increasingly textured and sculptural approaches. But it is not Moshiri’s technique that has earned him the attention that he currently benefits from, rather, it is his mastery of Iranian visual vernacular, as well as his acute awareness of popular culture and art history.
