Born in 1981 in Brussels (Belgium). Lives and works in Paris (France).

Farah Atassi’s colorful paintings oscillate between abstraction and figuration. They depaint spaces in which objects or characters are staged. Farah Atassi creates real pictorial worlds through a re-reading of the notions of perspective and an overabundance of geometric patterns.

Farah Atassi’s work has been exhibited at Boghossian Foundation (Brussels), Extra City Kunsthal (Antwerp), 7th Moscow International Biennial (Moscow), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Office (New York), Ermitage Museum (Saint-Petersburg), Centre Georges-Pompidou (Paris), Hyogo Prefecturam Museum of Art (Kobe), MAC/VAL – Musée d’Art Contemporain of Val-de-Marne (Vitry-sur-Seine), Centre d’Art Contemporain Le Portique (le Havre), Le Grand café, Centre d’Art Contemporain (Saint-Nazaire).

Her work is part of prestigious collections as Collection Marciano Art Foundation (Los Angeles), Fondation Louis Vuitton (Paris), Centre George-Pompidou (Paris), Musée d’art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (Paris), FMAC, Fonds Municipal d’Art Contemporain (Paris), among others.
