Good art is a matter of personal taste. What’s pretentious to one person may be perfection to another. One exhibition at the Galerie Perrotin (909 Madison Avenue), however, has both the modern bent and broad range of themes to make it appealing for a wide audience. You’ve only got until October 4 to catch the Farhad Moshiri “Float” display, and it’s too fascinating to let slip by!
Modern Art with Modern Themes
Farhad Moshiri draws influences from a diverse array of sources. From the most upper-crust media to popular culture and even comics, he creates images that will resonate with viewers. His use of texture and light-reflecting beads lends a shimmering air to his works, which makes the name of his exhibit all the more appropriate. Images seem to float on the canvas and draw the eye.
The artist often uses puns and humor as part of his means to get his message across. Even the most light-hearted of his works carries with it a profound message, whether that’s globalization, commodification, or the reverie of thought. The stylized images are striking and strangely compelling, and this exhibit is a treat to behold.
Farhad Moshiri has created a stir in the art world with his great success. He was born in Shiraz, Iran, and attended the California Institute of the Arts. In 2006, he became the first Middle Eastern artist to sell a work of art at auction for more than $1 million. Now, he’s well known for art that combines both traditional Iranian styles, and popular American culture.
It won’t surprise anyone to know, floating is one of Seastreak’s favorite themes! We’ve made floating an art form, as we get people to their destination in comfort and style. Whether you’re an art lover, or you’d rather catch a movie than an art installation, let Seastreak get you where you need to be!
Sea you soon!
