Maria Farrar

b. 1988, Cabanatuan, Philippines. Maria Farrar is a London-based artist who paints scenes derived from her everyday life or from fragments of memories, containing a sense of elusiveness. Among the many Japanese characteristics of her work are the calligraphic use of brushes, close ups and the unpainted margins. Farrar remarks on this as the idea of coming and going between the East (calligraphy, manga) and the West (raw lines, large oil paintings) in terms of technique, color, narrative and reality.
