Artist Bio

Fareen Butt is a Gemstone Painter who has been painting and exhibiting for a decade now. She spent her childhood in California, and has also lived in Mexico, Cameroon, Canada, and Pakistan. She has traveled extensively around the world, exhibiting in Dubai, Pakistan, New York, Egypt and will be exhibiting next year in Canada, Paris, Germany, New York, Dubai, Bangladesh and India.
The artist's technique technique is a cross between South- and Far- East Asian, as well as European classical methods.
Pointillism has been the signature of Seurat in the 1800's and Pousette Dart in more recent times, both employing oil paints as a medium. Painting with gemstone pigments has been employed for thousands of years by a variety of artisans from Japan to Persia, in which the medium consists of precious stones and metals. The artist has studied and experimented with this technique for many years, and has now started to use minerals more traditionally known to geologists and rock collectors for their physical characteristics and abilities as well.
Conceptually, the Mirage Series has been inspired by sacred landscapes around the world. The Akasa Series has been inspired by Sufi and Vedic philosophies of light.
