Nick Farhi

New York-born artist whose paintings of everyday decorative arts, kitchen vessels and midcentury glassworks are deceivingly simple. Each painting is, in fact, rife with nostalgic nods, systems of geometry, latent symbolism and a mind-bending ability to capture reflections and refractions. Collectively, his works bring a calculating sophistication to the seemingly mundane. He has exhibited extensively in New York, Los Angeles, London, Milan and Oslo.
