Farshid Shafiey

Biography

Quickly moving away from his traditional craft, his practice emerges through a personal vision between abstraction and figuration. A research for equilibrium and fragility is characteristic of his work. His sculptures, tapered and sharp, have rapidly been displayed in galleries and on the Art market. Eclectic and experimental, his broad thinking and creative freedom define his artistic style.
