Amir H. Fallah







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

Amir H. Fallah’s work across painting, installation, drawing and sculpture investigates the complexities of belonging and otherness in the very place one calls home. He paints his subjects’ bodies surrounded by their possessions and domestic environments, while disguising their skin colors and features. Fallah’s work is of analogously global ancestry, influenced by the pattern and detail of Persian miniatures, the portrayals of class and domestic life of 17th century Dutch Art, and the brashness and saturation of American visual culture.

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  What it Means to be an American at South Dakota Art Museum, Worlds Apart at Dio Horia, A Hybird Heart at Gordon Gallery, Tel Aviv (2019), and How Far We’ve Come at Denny Gallery, New York (2018).  Fallah has had solo exhibitions at the Denny Dimin Gallery, 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, The New York Times Style Magazine, Hyperallergic, Los Angeles Times, and The Guardian amongst others.
