About the Artist:
Farr (Farok) Ligvani has spent his life exploring and expressing world through art. Born in Tehran, Iran in 1957, he started painting at the age of four and designing furniture at twelve. In 1976, Ligvani moved to Los Angeles, studying Architecture at Southern California Institute of Architecture and Industrial Design at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. His creative path led him to an eclectic, distinguished career in designing, building, consulting and teaching.
Ligvani's fine art work, enriched by training in design as well as individual explorations of Eastern worldview and Western psychology, is not restricted to any one form of expression. Probing the paradox between simplicity and complexity, searching for balance in modern industrial society, his art evokes a sense of wonder and yearning for intuitive understanding in his audience. Ligvani's work shows an enthusiasm for exploration and interpretation, while inviting reflection. He sees his fine art is the very embodiment of the statement "grandiose is in simplicity."
