Farahnaz Samari graduated from Tehran University Faculty of Fine Arts in 2004, in the fields of Arts and Interior Design. Since then, she has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Iran. After immigrating to Canada, she became more and more interested in painting Impressionist and abstract landscapes using oil and acrylic mediums. Taking her artistic activities in Vancouver very seriously quickly resulted in participation in several exhibitions, selling a significant amount of artworks and being introduced as a successful artist in local publications.
She is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and a member of Canadian Chinese Cultural Development of Arts Association. She has participated 3 times in Art Battle Canada and she is a winner of the Season 6 of the Battle of the Brush in 2016. Beside her artistic activities, she also graduated from Advanced Painting courses at Emily Carr University.
All her artworks are original, imaginative and thought provoking, and she never uses any images or photos when creating her artworks. She believes herself to be extremely lucky to be born with such a pure love for the arts and to be able to share her passion using brushes, colour and canvas. In February 2017, Farahnaz became the winner of the Grand Finale of the Canada Golden Brush live painting competition, Battle of the Brush, at the Heritage Hall in Vancouver. Her Artworks are held in many private collections in North America, Iran and Europe.
