008 : Abdi Farah : Fine Artist

Abdi Farah


Abdi Farah (@abdiart) is the Season 1 winner of Bravo TV’s ‘Work of Art’.

In this in-depth interview Abdi lets us into his world. We hear about the moment he knew he had would it took to become a professional, what his typical day is like and what his frustrations are as an artist.

My favorite part is when Abdi talks openly about when his faith is tested (which he says happens “all the time”).

“As an artist you’re just hoping that the next stroke you put on the canvas is gonna make it good. Because every piece of art kind of sucks until it’s done.” – Abdi Farah
