Photos: Ali Moayedian & Mahyar Rahmatian

Farrin Rahimi was born in Uromieh in Azerbaijan province of Iran.  She moved to U.S.  in 1985 where she has lived ever since. She studied Art at San Jose State University and earned her BFA in Pictorial Art in 1997. Farrin's main interest is working in mixed media, but she also experiments with many different forms of art making.  Her inspiration comes from within, and she absorbs her surroundings that ultimately reflect in her body of work.  Farrin has held solo exhibitions and participated in group shows in Northern California. These include exhibition at SJSU, Open Studios and Iranian-American Art Show.

Note: Farrin was one of the participants in the Art Exhibition held by The Iranian Women's Studies Foundation (IWSF) in conjunction with the 19th IWSF 2008 International Conference in Berkeley, California (July 4-6, 2008). This exhibition was in recognition and appreciation of Iranian women artists and in celebration of their work.
