by Farhad Moshiri, an Iranian artist currently based in Tehran. Moshiri studied fine arts at CalArts in Pasadena, California, in the 1980s, where he first started experimenting with installations, video art and painting, before moving back to Tehran in 1991. He subsequently became well known for his ironic interpretations of hybrids between traditional Iranian forms and those of the consumerist and globalized popular culture widespread in his country. Life is Beautiful was an installation at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris in 2009. He is represented by The Third Line, Dubai, Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, Rodolphe Janssen in Brussels, and Thaddeus Ropac in Salzburg.
