Amir H. Fallah

Fallah’s work is about the different stories that exist within immigrant identities. Fallah paints portraits depicting objects and fabrics that represent the identity of his subject. Leaving out facial features he creates a universal and gender-neutral body focusing on the cultural markers that represent the identity of his subject. Fallah's body of work expands upon a larger conversation about the hybrid immigrant identity within the United States.

Fallah was born in Iran, grew up in Virginia, and is now based in Los Angeles. He has shown both nationally and internationally at places such as MOCA Tucson, Tucson, AZ; Mykonos, Greece; Tel Aviv, Israel; Museum Of Art and History, Lancaster, CA; Shulamit Nazarian, Los Angeles, CA; Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery, New York; San Diego Art Institute, San Diego, CA. His work is featured in public art collections such as the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), Miami, FL.
