Inquire

Amir H. Fallah

Born 1979 in Tehran, Iran. Lives in Los Angeles, CA.

Amir H. Fallah’s body of work includes painting, installation, drawing and sculpture. He is best known for unconventional portraits of people he encounters (or seeks out) which explore identity and personal narrative through his subjects’ interactions with objects. Fallah collages layers of these objects sourced from his subject’s environment and conceals the human subject of the portrait with patterned fabric. The portraits both reference and play off of longstanding Western and Middle Eastern traditions and uses of portraiture. Fallah’s installations further explore and construct narratives about eccentric individuals and influential artists, whose visual representations invite a larger reflection on contemporary artistic practice.

Amir H. Fallah received his MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and his BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore. His most recent solo exhibitions are Unknown Voyage at the Schneider Museum of Art in Ashland, Oregon (2017) and Almost Home at The Third Line in Dubai (2017).  Fallah has also had solo exhibitions are the Nerman Museum of Art, Overland, KS, Shulamit Nazarian, Los Angeles, CA and Gordon Gallery, Tel Aviv, Israel; in addition to numerous international group exhibitions including We Must Risk Delight-Twenty Artists from Los Angeles, 56th La Biennale di Venezia, Venice, Italy (2015) and the 9th Sharjah Biennial, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates (2009). Fallah has been written about in Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, Hyperallergic, Los Angeles Times, and The Guardian.
