Farid was born in Tehran. He started painting at the age of 4, after his mother noticed a creative streak in him. He graduated with a Civil Aviation degree in Iran before arriving in Australia in 2013 with his wife and children.

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