Farzin Nikzad My paintings are a means to validate myself. The driving force in creating my art is the experience of improvisation, accidents and decisions made as the work is being conceived. Most of it is intuitive and an attempt to create a space where one can experience a lasting impression. Lately I started a series that reflects on values and believes that society is dictating us, questioning its validity and the course that we are embarked upon. I deconstruct words and attribute new meaning to them with pictograms as an antidote to these tragic yet challenging times.
