Farnoosh Saeedi… A painter from East­ern Kur­dis­tan

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Ashti Garmiyani

The Kur­dish painter of East­ern Kur­dis­tan Farnoosh Saeedi was born in the city of Sina. She's spe­cial­ized in draw­ing. Saeedi has been in­ter­ested in the art since her child­hood. She has, to a great ex­tend, taken ad­van­tage of the aca­demic and in­ter­na­tional schools as it ap­pears in her works. The in­ter­na­tional schools es­pe­cially those of the golden cen­tury, the art of the 19th cen­tury, has been the cor­ner­stone of her works. This can be ob­served in her use of forms, col­ors and per­sonal style. Ms. Farnoosh was in­flu­enced by the fa­mous Kur­dish painter Hadi and Mahdi Zaya­dini as well. She has had sev­eral exhibitions es­pe­cially in the ci­ties of Sina, Mari­wan, Shahr Taran, Di­wan­dara in East­ern Kur­dis­tan and some coun­tries abroad such as Canada.

When study­ing art, stu­dents start with the el­e­men­tary steps and prin­ci­ples of paint­ing, es­pe­cially via work­ing with live mod­els, land­scapes as they help the artist to build a good foun­da­tion for later works. Study- ing the ba­sic prin­ci­ples are the el­e­men­tary steps to build great works or projects. Ms. Farnoosh has passed through this step and has been able to pro­duce some im­pres­sive works of her own. Farnoosh has also stud­ied great painters from the Re­nais­sance era. To­gether with her Kur­dish back­ground, Ms. Saeedi has man­aged to pro­duce works that re­flect the life and cul­ture of the East­ern Kur­dish so­ci­ety.

The artis­tic schools Ms. Farnoosh fol­lowed and got in­spired by are re­al­ism, cu­bism and ex­pres­sion­ism. Art is like a bound­less sea; that’s why one may step for­ward in all di­rec­tions to de­velop his/ her own spe­cial style. Though the Kur­dish cul­ture in East­ern Kur­dis­tan is sup­pressed and has not given any chance to bloom, Farnoosh has tried her best to prove the vi­tal­ity and the im­por­tance of her art in the East­ern cul­tural life de­spite the set­backs.
