Fariba Baghi believes that art acts as a bridge to enlightened consciousness; a genuine expression of the soul. Born in Tehran, Iran, Baghi spent her early life immersed in a rich artistic culture dating back thousands of years. This overabundance of inspiration stimulated her imagination and led to an insatiable desire to create. Drawing from her meditative practice, as well as the work of poets such as Rumi and Hafiz, Baghi seeks to express a harmony between oneself and the universe, which she creates using a delicate balance between aged earthy tones and the ethereal human forms she depicts.

Witnessing the Iranian Islamic revolution in her youth, Baghi was exposed to a sudden overwhelming change in society and a major loss of freedom, specifically for women. This led her to emigrate to Canada in search of a more open society. Following a house fire a few years ago in which she lost all of her possessions and paintings, Baghi found herself dramatically shifting her style to abstraction and began incorporating hand- ground pigments that she creates using materials such as wine, coffee, various vegetables, and spices.
