Farhad Moshiri’s Sharp Display of Affection

Farhad Moshiri, Iranian artist, uses a contradictory tool to display the aptly titled installation “Life is Beautiful”. The ornate typography is stabbed directly into the gallery wall using hundred of knives. There is a sense of sarcastic ambiguity within Farhad’s piece. The artist believes there is room for interpretation and prefers to view the installation with a sense of lightheartedness. Attending the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) for art and filmaking, before receiving international acclaim, Farhad is known for pushing the limits of texture and materials.
