About Negar Farajiani

I was born in Yazd, the historical sun city in the middle of Iran in 1977.
I remember my childhood spent in amazing and colorful environment with playing,adventurous leisure and explore numerous shapes,forms and colors.

Subsequently, I became keen on art activities specially, painting and drawing

Negar Farajiani's painting suggest of rational growth concerning the perception of absurd painting in Iran.She does not intend to present an exotic feel or makeup in her painting.in fact,she brings her perplexity to order by using colors,and w in connecting to her works,like the seats oillingly or unwillingly,the spectator connects to these colors a kind of ambiguous chaos that invites the viewers of this delivery,too,to tranquility.
In other words in connecting to my works,like the seats of a concert hall that are taken gradually,the mind of the spectator begins to rest peacefully due to some kind of harmony that exists between various bits and pieces.
The energy of nature and intellect reach the highest point in Negar Farajiani's images and this is what exactly happens,willingly or unwillingly,in the mind of the spectator as well,making their fantasies sway in the gentle breeze that blows out from a wild and unruly nature.
