Munazzah Farhan - Artist Mooni
Munazzah Farhan, known as “Artist Mooni”, is a Canadian based Finger Painting artist of modern impressionism and textural expressionist oil and acrylic paintings. Currently living in Toronto, she had previously worked and lived in Asia, Middle east and Europe. She is a graduate in engineering and holds an MBA as well.
Since her early days, she wanted to be known as an Artist but it took her time to get over her boundaries. Years back when waves of life were going against her, at that time when she truly felt loneliness, she got inspired by that pain through the sensation of colors in her fingers that she can own it, this is when she decided to donate her life as a self-taught finger painting artist. For her work, she has always believed on skills and spark that can be seen in her paintings. Her work is bolder, vibrant and passionately warm that shows several years of her hard work.
She started doing paintings in 2010 and sold through commissions. Her work is comprised of Landscapes and Cityscapes but she also loves Floral. For her, art is a great way of scratching the soul through textures, colors, depths and giving a vision of life through an Artist’s eyes. When words are not enough then stroke speaks.
She likes to create art to capture her audience’s attention and through textures make them feel to be connected with her paintings. Her aim is to give life to walls full of vibrancy. She also loves to describe her paintings in words and use words to paint every single shade and strokes that tells a story that anyone can relate themselves to. In her paintings there is a hidden message that will help you to release your stress and anxiety. Believe in yourself because you worth it.
Amanda designs commercial art by day as a graphic designer. By night, she can be found in her studio painting. A formal education and foundation in art and design, allow her to apply these fundamentals in her work.
Amanda’s initial love of art growing up, be it painting, illustration or photography, lead her to a career in graphic design, primarily designing consumer packaging. After designing for marketing purposes for many years, she found her passion again, coming full circle, to what made her chose a creative path in the first place.
Putting brush to canvas is Amanda's true artistic passion and outlet - forever a lover of the creative process. Her motivation in making art is completely self-indulgent.
My current abstract series focuses on colour and texture, through the use of acrylics, gesso and modelling paste. I have an intuitive process with many layers, built over multiple painting sessions. Each piece starts with a colour palette and the emotion it evokes. I use either soft brush blending techniques or bold mixes with a palette knife, or a combination of both. I do not write about my specific inspiration or what I see in a painting. As the viewer, the art becomes yours. It is your interpretation and connection to the piece that matters.
I am a mother, dreamer, dancer, traveler, explorer, humanitarian, environmentalist, workaholic, animal lover, concert junkie, introvert by day, extrovert by night.
