SAN FRANSISCO, CA
Directed by color and influenced by folk art practices, Kristin Farr is a painter who also makes art videos, collaborates with festivals and companies, interviews artists and curates art projects. She is a Deputy Editor for Juxtapoz Magazine, Creator for KQED’s Art School and a contributor to The New York Times. Kristin’s nature as a writer and editor gives her particular insights into how artists develop their work and then pitch it to the world.
Kristin’s paintings sell both online and in physical galleries and serve as proof-of-concept for the sale of her murals. Kristin livesnear Silicon Valley in San Francisco, and her app “Farr Out” served as a free demonstration of how a smartphone can combine her work with selfies or could be placed in environments, predating the now common web software that can place art in your home. Her murals are created for commercial or public spaces, mural festivals and other calls for works, at the Berkeley Art Center, Facebook HQ, and in Taiwan, Detroit, Worcester, and other locations. Kristin has also done commercial projects and collaborations with Google and Nike, and a recent car wrap for Uber X as part of Art Basel | Miami.
