The Endangered, Can Art Save Them?
An International Art Exhibition
(November 7 through January 8, 2021)
Farahs experimental art aims to capture your attention with bright colours, energy and imagination. Working with a variety of media including chemicals, aerosol paint, acrylics, watercolour, enamel, ink and resin Farah aspires to paint beyond the visible and touch the soul.
Farahs artwork has been exhibited all over galleries in her hometown London and internationally. She has been featured in the press, on television and on London radio for her art programmes with young people at risk and her work with young soldiers and addicts in using art as an expressive platform to overcome mental health difficulties.
Farah is a freelance art teacher, artist, writer and public speaker, encouraging young people to overcome their life challenges and pursue their dreams using the power of art.
The illegal tarantula trade is a rarely publicised corner of the black market in wildlife, a multibillion-dollar business that is harming animal populations around the world.
These terrifying yet beautiful creatures inspire fear and awe, having the misconception of being deadly, when the majority of spiders kept by humans rarely bite and when they do it is equivalent to a bee sting. Tarantulas draw collectors as they are often seen as a novel and unusual pet.
Tarantulas require specialist care and attention, from temperature control to feeding regimes. My painting is of my spider - Clarice - from the species Chromatopelma Cyaneopubescens or Greenbottle Blue; known for their stunning beautiful metallic colours.
I have used enamel paint and resin to bring out her radiance in my art.
