Niloufar Fallahfar (b.1991, Karaj, Iran) has a Diploma in Graphic Design and a
BFA in Painting that she has received from the Sooreh University Tehran. She has
taken several courses in drawing during her childhood and teenage years and
several practical and theoretical courses as a university student. She has
participated in several painting and drawing group exhibitions, festivals, and
biennials. She also received recognition at the 6th Damunfar Visual Arts Festival.
Fallahfar is an artist who follows a very different path compared to the others. She
is undeniably a very technical painter. However, she utilizes the technique to
challenge the possibilities and impossibilities of art. She thinks about the hidden
things that are not meant to be seen in a work of art. Her works are made of several
sides and surfaces. She converts painting from a 2-D surface to a 3-D object.
Therefore, she challenges the modern ideas and descriptions of a painting which is,
according to Clement Greenberg, “being loyal to flat surfaces and frames of
painting”. By creating multi-surface objects and showing them as paintings, she
tries to present parts of the work of art that are easily seen and parts that remain
unseen or may seem irrelevant.Fallahfar Lives and Works in Karaj, Iran. She also
received recognition at the 6th Damunfar Visual Arts Festival. Since 2016,
Fallahfar has been teaching painting in schools.
