Fariba Molavi has absorbed an acute attention to form associated with architecture. She refines her own visual and conceptual vocabulary, a vocabulary that evolved through her focus on common points in architecture, calligraphy and spatial analysis. Her art work is a realization of a sense of unity between physical material and the conceptualization of her ideas and tries to create her personal aesthetics of the works and combining reality with artificiality.
She also paints conceptual hyperrealism portrait which is a genre of painting resembling a high-resolution photograph and to mix it with design and texture of materials such as silk tread. She has always been interested in human individuality and self-expression. Visually She is inspired by culture, history, architect and human. Her conceptual hyperrealism portraits are devoted to relationship between human’s inner world with human’s behavior and morality in society.
