Farah Atassi (b. 1981, Brussels, Belgium) is a French painter known for blending the languages of Cubism and radical abstraction, textile patterning, and postmodern design in richly textured, boldly geometric canvases. Atassi twists classical painting tropes, recasting the history of the still life, the nude, the bather, and the artist studio within her own matrix of references. Built up with layers of oil paint, her compositions are noted for their sharply graphic quality and pictorial architecture. Recent solo shows include Le Consortium, Dijon (2019); Musée des Beaux-Arts, Cambrai (2018); Museum Permeke, Jabbeke (2018); François Ghebaly, Los Angeles (2020), Almine Rech, New York (2019); and Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp (2015). Her works are held in the public collections of Musée d’art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Fondation Louis Vuitton, Centre Georges Pompidou, among others.
