It’s Tuesday and time once again for our exclusive artist feature in partnership with premiere website building platform Made With Color. Each week we join forces to bring you some of the most exciting artists and designers working today who use Made With Color to create their clean and sleek websites. Made With Color doesn’t just help artists create gorgeous websites but allows them to do so in a few minutes without having to touch a line of code.This week we are excited to share the mysterious and surreal photographs of Roya Falahi.

Using the realism of large-format photography, Roya Falahi captures surreal imagery – finely crafted portraits, and narrative ‘tableaux’- that often explore disguise and veiling within the context of recent geopolitical events.  With an emphasis on self portraits, Falahi’s works are resonant with visual and psychological impact, layering multiple references to create new and complex connotations.

Informed by her Iranian-American heritage, popular culture and style, as well as hard-rock music, Falahi’s work comprises a compelling investigation into contemporary issues surrounding identity and culture.
