Artists of the moment…………Anoka Faruqee

Anoka Faruqee is an American artist working in an Op- Art style that a viewer might call handmade pixels. Anoka Faruqee was born in

Faruqee attended Yale University earning a B.F.A. The artist went on to earn a M.F.A. from Tyler University located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Faruqee is a professor at Yale teaching painting and printmaking.

We catch up with our friend James Kalm and visit an abstract show featuring Anoka Faruqee’s work at the 13:30 mark of the clip. I was really impressed with the quality of some of the other artists in this show and will be featuring them soon. One work was very unique, a digital print on velvet!:

Price range information: Sorry none available.

I enjoy the artist’s use of line and how she creates works that seem to move as the viewer changes position. Another artist who has a wonderful sense of motion in her artwork is Shirley Kaneda.
