University of Minnesota Department of Art & Katherine E. Nash Gallery says
Amir H. Fallah was born in Tehran, Iran in 1979. He received his BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2001 and his MFA from University of California Los Angeles in 2005. His artistic oeuvre encompasses painting, drawing and sculpture/installation, with collage and complex patterning forming a large part of the visual vocabulary. The works are decidedly ornate but present a critical observation of the deconstruction and appropriation of portraiture in all its various forms. In his more recent body of work, aside from unravelling a different perspective to art historical portraiture traditions and the dynamics of modern day art collection and art making, he also reflects upon concerns of identity and representation that are central to his practice.

Amir has exhibited widely across the United States and internationally, and has participated in the We Must Risk Delight -Twenty Artists From Los Angeles, 56th La Biennale Di Venezia, Venice, Italy (2015) and the 9th Sharjah Biennial, Sharjah, UAE (2009). Amir is a 2015 recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant. His works are part of several private and public collections, including the Nerman Museum Of Contemporary Art and the Salsali Private Museum Collection. Amir lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
