“A viewer of Farzad Golpayegani‘s untitled paintings will get a distinct sense of dreamy surrealism. “You don’t have logical boundaries within a dream,” says the artist. Even the strangest things can feel normal in this context, and that is the sense that Golpayegani imbues in his works..”

“Farzad Golpayegani’s entrancing work is at once dreamy and dark, whimsical and mysterious. Golpayegani creates extremely ornate compositions in charcoal, marker, and acrylic that explore the limits of line and texture. Though he fills his canvases with color, it sits lightly. Golpayegani is more concerned with how texture communicates: how it changes the direction of a plane, how it creates an interaction between background and foreground, and how it dazzles the eye. His work is almost mathematical in how it plays with these angles and intersections.
For his subject matter, Golpayegani focuses largely on the symbolic capacity of the human body. His figures are sinuous and come in every color; they are themselves marked with patterns and expressive line work that enhances and enriches their body language. Though his figures are often faceless, they say thousands of words.
Golpayegani was born in Tehran, Iran and lived in Turkey and California before settling in his present home of Albany, New York. In addition to his fine art, he is trained in graphic design and has released six albums of his own music.”
