Faiyaz Jafri is a new media artist born and raised in rural Holland of Dutch and Pakistani descent. He studied at the Technical University of Delft (MS) and is self-taught as an animation artist and music composer. He is the founder and curator of the Third Culture Film Festival in Hong Kong and teaches at Parsons School of Design in New York.
Jafri’s art explores Jungian archetypes in the modern world, distilling the pop references of mass media and global popular culture into a visual shorthand of neo-archetypes. Realizing early on that a computer could draw a straighter line than he ever could, Jafri started using them as soon as the technology became more readily available. As the technology evolved, his work developed from flat line art into a stripped-down 3D computer graphics style he calls hyper-unrealism.
