Farhan’s non-linear path to contemporary art has laid the foundations for his current work. An history and literature major, he followed extracurricular art courses at University, then went straight into advertising. Making stencils and cutting out paper for a living, his day-job proved itself an important training for his art. Not only the advertising field thought him a few technical skills, but also informed the content of the artist’s current practice.
Even though his works have been exhibited internationally, he has never lost touch with the street. Wherever he goes, he is always genuinely interested to bond with local artistic communities and explore the social impact of street art.
