For the past two years, Los Angeles-based artist Amir H. Fallah has constructed intricate, deeply autobiographical imagery by mining the archives of various universities, libraries, and public collections. The resulting paintings act as a living document of his experiences. Now, he turns to his own archive to produce works that exist solely in the digital realm. They function as an archeological survey, with new works cannibalizing the old. Fallah ties together vignettes of appropriated imagery, using fine art, children’s books, and the visual and subliminal messaging of consumer advertising. The lines between traditional painting and digital production are blurred beyond recognition, dealing with themes of climate change, immigration, xenophobia and social justice.

In his latest series of NFTs, Fallah lifts past work not only into the present, but into the future tense. Animating previously static elements of Fallah’s work allows deeper complexities of the paintings to be revealed over time, with layer upon layer of various characters, graphics, signs and symbols peeling themselves away, primed for discovery and extended dialogue. They are transformed into newer statements, while maintaining the nuanced, rich histories belonging to Fallah’s subjects. From patterns on their clothing, to personal keepsakes, to individual experiences, all of these things belonging to his subjects are brought into the fold of these reimagined works. 4k media file available for auction winner.
