Amir H. Fallah’s latest works are acrylics on canvas that create dark quasi-architectural spaces within which bright colorful fragments swarm and scatter. The ambiguity and transience of the “mess” create an eerie contrast to the surrounding walls that appear untouched.
Born in Tehran, Iran in 1979, Fallah holds an MFA in painting from UCLA, as well as a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute of College of Art in Baltimore. He has been included in group exhibitions and art fairs in Los Angeles and New York since 2000, and in 2005 he made a solo debut at Third Line Gallery in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Fallah is a founder of and has been a creative director for Beautiful Decay, L. A.-based quarterly pop culture and art magazine, since 2002.
