Artist statement

Faranu is a visual artist, abstract expressionist and pattern designer using charcoal as her primary medium. Her passion for art comes from deep within. She uses her personal interests, like architecture, fashion, poetry, music, film and traveling as a source of inspiration and an catalyst to create works that communicate in an visual way.

The strong dark charcoal strokes and vague imagery create a unique play of lines and sometimes create a dreamy atmosphere. Faranú’s drawings and sculptures appear powerful in their size and positioning, but at the same time her figurative works leave plenty of room for the observer's imagination. Her latest drawings reveal ‘a universal language with a different personal context’.

Faranu is an award winning artist and internationally exhibits her work. Her artworks are owned by galleries , museums, art collectors as well as part time art-enthusiasts.
