Faripour Forouhar is a lifelong professional painter. He is an established American contemporary painter of the highest standards who pursues the art of painting far beyond avocation.
His home is in New England, but he grew up in the high mountains of Middle Asia. He travels to the Rockies, Alps and Andes and the shorelines in the USA and Europe yearly for his painting.
He studied painting in Teheran University School of Fine Arts during college years. Later, he studied with the late Edgar Whitney from Pratt NYC and completed courses in The Grand Central Academy of Fine Art, NYC. He shares his experiences with other painters regularly. He is a scholar in the field of art and visual perception and has a deep interest in the evolution of painting throughout history.
He started as a watercolorist painting plein air, ala prima. He has moved to oil on canvas with a style sensitive to subtle light, atmospheric effect and space in the landscape. The effect infuses the abstract composition and reveals the painter's character, vision, and artistic creativity.
