THE DROP

Entering into a new phase of work, LA based artist Amir H. Fallah pulls from his own archive of paintings to produce works that exist solely in the digital realm, releasing his first ever NFT editions on MakersPlace. Portraits of veiled figures capitalize on ambiguity to skillfully weave fact and fiction, questioning how to create a portrait without representing the physicality of the sitter. While the stories that surround his subjects are deeply personal and are told through the intimate possessions they hold most dear, Fallah’s work addresses generational immigrant experiences of movement, trauma, and celebration.

ONE 1/1 AUCTION AND TWO LIMITED EDITIONS

In addition to the 1/1 auction which Fallah has become known for, he here presents his work for the first time as two limited editions. The Meeting is offered as 3 limited editions with the final edition auctioned to the highest bidder. Hold On Tight is a collection of 10 unique 1/1 variations of the same artwork. Collectors that purchase Hold On Tight will receive one randomly selected variation. Only one of each variation will be distributed.
