Marc Fattahi was born in Persia. Ancient Persia, was the home of mathematics and astronomy, as well as being the cradle of civilization. Fattahi studied in Europe in Lyon, France to become a doctor, but soon afterwards realized he was an artist, and started paintings on the streets of Paris for years. He moved to the United States in 1988, and founded Fattahi’s Art Gallery in Stamford, CT, in 1992.
Fattahi has been painting his entire adult life from Persia to Paris and finally to America. His work is exhibited several times a year in his gallery, and he has been an exhibitor at the Spectrum Art Expo in Manhattan since 1999. His work has a vibrancy that impacts the viewer immediately. It evokes strong reactions; it grabs the viewer and demands total engagement. This portfolio showcases a sampling of his pieces, covering his major series. Fattahi’s work, taken as a whole, explores the yin/yang of the human experience, speaking to the desire for the comforts and love of home – the roots – and the yearning for exploration, adventure and the thrill of possibilities – the wings.
