Biography  
Jean Claude Farhi


Biography from RoGallery.com

Born in Paris in 1940, Jean-Claude Farhi ever since the age of 16 feels the need to express his creativity.  Meeting his friend the painter Antonio Ascona in 1956 is capital and marks a turning point in his life.  Farhi undertakes in 1957 art classes in the "Beaux-arts de Nice".  The extraordinary journey of this artist has brought him to know characters from the artistic scene such as Pierre Restany, Iris Clert, C├ęsar, Arman and many others.

Farhi has managed to use various types of material for his sculptures and oversize columns; Plexiglass (since 1969), crude steel (since 1991) while keeping his unique style characterized by variable geometric forms, colors often very bright and contrasted.

Today Farhi continues his creation of a monumental series of metal sculptures. He often travels between France and New York.  The majority of his works are intended for European and American private collections
