San Francisco based artist Kristin Farr creates colorful works that are heavily patterned, slightly psychedelic, and totally fun! Using Geometry as a basis for most of her work, Farr covers every square inch of her canvases with bold colors that will send your vision into a tailspin. Inspired by nostalgia, humor, rainbows and magic, she is currently exploring a legacy of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art and is interested in human-made objects that are believed to contain mythical powers.
Recently Farr collaborated with curated online marketplace RARE to create a capsule collection called “Farr Out”. The collection includes eye popping Neon Diamond Dance Pants, perfect for tearing up the dance floor at your next party. If the Neon Diamond Dance Pants don’t have enough diamonds for you, check out her Mega Diamond Dance Pants. The standout pieces in the collection have to be the Party Pals Shirt and the Magic Eyes Shirt, both of which are covered in Farr’s signature mind-bending patterns!
Eminent scholar, artist, and human being Kristin Farr recently gave the world an awesome gift in the release of her new app, #FarrOut. Neon rainbow laser beams from another dimension are what Kristin’s artwork is all about, and now you can mess around with her magical paintings for free! Add them to your photos or create brand new compositions using funny animals, rainbow diamonds, and super magical energy! #FarrOut is guaranteed to make you happy and bring you good luck. As the summer really hits its stride, we can now take part in a process heretofore only available to the artist herself. Definitely a good omen for the season.
Been into Kristin Farr‘s colorful diamond patterns for a minute now. Farr’s work, which falls under many categories (painting, sculpture, crafts, music videos, animation), deals in themes of “nostalgia, humor, comfort, and folk magic” (she hipped me to Pennsylvania Dutch folk art hex signs- so rad). The artist has applied her colorful sensibility to vinyl record covers, suitcases, and various installation pieces, and is always looking out for a good opportunity to present her work in an outdoor context. In addition to her various eclectic interests, Farr is influenced by her experience with synesthesia, which totally makes sense when looking at her work.
