Farmanfarmaian is a ground breaking artist whose work
in mirror and glass won her international recognition.
She has been featured in exhibitions in New York, Paris,
Bonn, Venice, and Tehran. In her recent constructions
she uses three dimensional wooden boxes, paint, glass,
mirror, fabric, and photographs to tell her own story.
Incorporating everything from traditional Islamic designs
to children's toys Farmanfarmaian creates fantastic and
imaginative scenes that are often autobiographical, occasionally
humorous and always beautiful. Monir Farmanfarmaian lives
and works in New York City.
Here are some of her works:
