Iranian artist Farsad Labbauf (b. 1965) is known for his linear painting style, which origin lies in Figurative Expressionism, a style he practiced for more than two decades. Labbauf uses his many sources of inspiration to create layered meanings that come together in a persuasive and challenging collection of paintings and drawings. The resulting works, often taking form as portraits, are unique expressions of light, form and color. The origins of Labbauf's work lie in Figurative Expressionism, a style after two decades of experimentation developed into his unique linear figurative technique. Believing that a painting must exist in a state of flux as all events, objects, people and thoughts are constantly changing, his works exist "halfway between completion and dissolution" that inevitably uncover the duality of segmentation and unity.
Educated at Rhode Island School of Design, Farsad Labbauf has been featured in group and solo exhibitions for over 20 years, most recently in Iran, the US and the Netherlands. Collections showcasing his work include: Saatchi Gallery (London, UK), Salsali Private Museum (Dubai, UAE), Museum of Contemporary Art (Esfahan, Iran), Walt Disney Corporation (Orlando, US) and Carstens de Boer Art Collection (Amsterdam, Netherlands).
