FURRAH  SYED  ART

Explore Furrah’s world of abstract art

My Approach

My approach to creating and sharing abstract art is a very different one.  I encourage people to have a multi-sensory experience when engaging with my work. I invite viewers to explore the rich textures of my paintings using their sense of touch; to rotate the pieces to view different perspectives; and observe the colours of my paintings change, not only with each rotation but also with the varying light that shines upon them.

I am a firm believer that abstract art, and art in general, should be inclusive, and not exclusive; this is reflected in my approach.

MAKING ART ACCESSIBLE TO ALL

Why should Art be only for those who can see?  What would it be like for someone to engage with my works using only their sense of touch? Can I use Art to break down cultural & social barriers?

These questions inspired me to devise and develop my ‘Art Appreciation Workshop for the Blind and Visually Impaired’ and led me on a journey to make art accessible for all.

WHAT ARE MY CLIENTS SAYING?

I am so happy to own one of Furrah Syed’s paintings, which has pride of place in my lounge. The way it reflects the light and gleams is amazing and I often rotate the painting so that I can see it from a new perspective. What is so unique about Furrah’s work is the way that the luscious textures and rich, gleaming colours come together to create a masterpiece. Visitors often say how much they like it and ask me about it. I would like to buy more of Furrah’s work, as her own passion for art really comes through in her paintings and I love the colours and textures she uses. Thank you Furrah!

Julie Hinkley, London, Private Collector

I love the painting with its vibrant use of colours. The textures give the impression of movement, and every time you look at the painting you see something new in it. It is the centrepiece of our home.

S. Palejwala, Bahrain, Private Collector

We have been the lucky owners of one of Furrahs art pieces since we met whilst living in India in 2006. Although the piece can be hung on all sides, as soon as I saw it I imagined a figure sitting quietly by the side of a lake, peaceful and calm. One of my favourite pictures to look at as it is painted mainly in greens and blues and invokes a lovely uplifting feeling of summer.
