Farah Billah is a contemporary painter & poet from Sacramento, CA.

She paints & writes because the world is a strange place &she was given hands. Her work is heavily influenced by surrealism, Mughal paintings, Bangladeshi culture, the animal &botanical kingdoms, outer space, and the very personal violence of it all. Her work is a quiet attempt at honesty. (also blah blah something about survival).

Farah is currently scraping out the inside of her brain (& pursuing her MFA in painting) in New Orleans, LA.
