In the sleepy suburbs of Fairfax, Virginia, Amir Fallah founded Beautiful/Decay as a black and white, hand-photocopied “zine” while still in high school. Along with business partners Fubz and Ben Osher, Fallah has transformed B/D into an internationally distributed publication with a circulation of over 40,000 readers in less than ten years.
As the Creative Director of B/D, Amir has molded the magazine into one of today’s most well-respected and reputable independent publications. His working aesthetic, knowledge, and creative intuition is internationally recognized and his CV includes illustration for numerous publications, event orchestration, revitalization of brand identities, and speaking on panels at colleges and universities, including Columbia College, USC, UCLA, and Maryland Institute College of Art.
Amir received his B.F.A. from The Maryland Institute College of Art and his M.F.A from UCLA in 2005. His past exhibits include shows at 4-F, M.Y. Art Prospects, Laband Gallery, Cherry And Martin, Overtones, and Scope Miami.
