Amir H. Fallah (b. 1979 Tehran, Iran) received his BFA in Fine Arts and Painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art and his MFA in Painting from the University of California, Los Angeles. Fallah’s oeuvre encompasses painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation, combined with a visual vocabulary that includes collage and complex patterning. His works present critical observations of the deconstruction and appropriation of portraiture in various forms. Fallah’s practice presents an alternative perspective to historical portraiture traditions. Intertwined with these concerns are his reflections upon identity and personal narrative. He has exhibited extensively in solo and group shows across the United States and abroad. In 2015, Fallah held a solo exhibition at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art and received the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant. In 2009, the artist was selected in the 9th Sharjah Biennial. Fallah lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
