|Rememberance by Fariba Bogzaran|
Many of us dream about the dream and talk about painting the dream but Fariba lives this dream within the dream. Her life is a magical web of light and dark spirals. Her art touches the innermost pysche. She is one of my favorite artists. If you wish to dive more deeply into the ocean of surrealism and dreaming on the canvas, then I highly recommend Fariba's paintings.
