Aside from painting, Farid is also an avid photographer, an activity that he combines with oil painting and drawing in his work. Farid specialises in the portrayal of the human figure.  Home: Between Here and There is Farid’s first public exhibition in Australia.

“In my art, I like to capture the beauty in mundane objects and places,” Farid said. “For this oil painting I wanted to represent the many objects that symbolise ‘Home’. For me, these include the tar, a traditional Persian instrument, and the Persian rug which is passed from generation to generation and is found in every Iranian home.

“All these objects remind me of my parents, and the home I have left behind.”
