Artist Amir H Fallah creates vibrantly wild bouquets that explore the beauty in the bizarre. A graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, Amir H Fallah is a painter as well as sculptor, and the founder of the contemporary art mag Beauty/Decay. Wielding his subversive aesthetics, Amir H Fallah crafts tangled technicolor bundles of unnatural floral and fauna. Working in a style comparable to folk art, his images look like illustrations to a dark but beautiful fairytale.

The overlapping and overgrown composition of Fallah's composition lends a certain energy to the overall piece. The painters are beautiful, but their chaotic nature and bizarre subjects make Fallah's work more than just a pile of paint to swoon over. These raise conflicted emotions and a sense of unease, which is sure to keep his viewers gazing.

Vibrantly vivacious and strangely macabre, Amir H Fallah creates images that deserve to be stared at.
