Nick Farhi (b. 1987, New York) develops wonky and askewed visual grammar through painting both still and moving life at deliberately bewildering and unusual scale. Through interplay between visual research (spanning from source, autobiographical photography and cinema) to an internal intuition for representation, Farhi juxtposes daily life with obscure symbology.
Nick’s influences range from his Jewish-Lebanese roots in New York City, to his time spent living along the North American East and West coasts, Mexico, and parts of Europe.
Farhi has exhibited his work both domestically and internationally at venues such as the Kirkland Gallery of the Harvard GSD, the Mana Museum of Contemporary Art, Palazzo Monti, Half Gallery New York, Golsa, Karma International, a Gathering of the Tribes, M+B Los Angeles, Marlborough Gallery London, and others.
