Fariba Rahnavard, born in 1984, is a modern and contemporary Iranian painter. She started painting professionally at the age of 18. After a few years, she entered the Faculty of Art and Architecture of the University of Central Tehran. During these years, due to her intense interest in the tragedies of the modern world, she turned to abstract expressionism, which has often been associated with the subject of history, violence, and catastrophe in the modern world. Her works were later exhibited in international biennials and exhibitions, including the Florence Biennale and the Manhattan International Competition.
