Farah Billah is a contemporary painter and poet from Sacramento, CA.
Widely recognized for her photo series Coriander Cats, her work has been featured on Buzzfeed, Pop XO Daily, HYFN, The Dhaka Tribune, and NBC News. She is the author of Wrong Turns Lead Here, her debut collection of poetry in the United States.
Her poems have been featured in literary publications like The Metaworker, The Rising Phoenix Review, Black Napkin Press, and Six Seasons Review.
She paints and writes because the world is a strange place and she was given hands. Heavily influenced by surrealism, Mughal paintings, Bangladeshi culture, the animal and botanical kingdoms, love, loss, and the resilience of her mother. Her work is a simple attempt to be honest.
Farah is currently working on a few projects in her hometown with friends. Quietly.
