Farhad Moshiri

Farhad Moshiri

Born: 1963

Hometown: Iran

Lives and Works: Tehran

 

Farhad Moshiri is one of Iran’s most internationally visible artists, due in part to his deft, humorous and visually seductive examinations of popular culture and the modern world. He was born 1963 in Shiraz, Iran, and studied fine arts at CalArts in California. In America he first started experimenting with installations, video art and painting before coming back to Tehran in 1991. He is well known for his ironic interpretations of hybrids between traditional Iranian forms and those of the consumerist and globalized popular culture widespread in his country. Farhad Moshiri became the first artist from the Middle East to sell a work of art at auction for more than $1 million when his swarovski crystallized artwork "Love" sold for $1,048,000 at Bonhams's first Dubai auction in 2006.
