Faripour Forouhar is a professional life long painter. He is an established American contemporary painter of the highest standards who pursues the art of painting far beyond avocation.

His home is in New England but he grew up in the high mountains of Middle Asia. He travels to the Rockies, Alps and Andes and the shore lines in the USA and Europe yearly for his painting.

He studied painting in Teheran University School of Fine Arts during college years. Later, he studied with the late Edgar Whitney from Pratt NYC and completed courses in The Grand Central Academy of Fine Art, NYC. He shares his experiences with other painters regularly. He is a scholar in the field of art and visual perception and has a deep interest in the evolution of painting throughout history.

He started as a watercolorist painting plein air, ala prima. He has moved to oil on canvas with a style sensitive to subtle light, atmospheric effect and space in the landscape. The resulting effect infuses the abstract composition and reveals the painter's character, vision and artistic creativity.

Artist's Statement

"The abstraction and distortion that is possible in painting makes it uniquely suitable for expression of the conscious and unconscious experience in a manner far truer and more intriguing than an accurate recording, done for example, by a camera. The more subjective the experience, the more unique the expression. This principle applies to all forms of painting; figurative, imaginative and abstract. The challenge is in conscious understanding of the visual elements that effectuate the subjective experience, the "know yourself" - the artist's vision - that matters most and the skill to lay it down on canvas with clarity. This is what I am trying to do."
