Her artworks, which included ‘Morphology’, ‘Fusion’ and ‘Harmonics’, received seven ‘excellent’ commendations at the festival by the curators judging the works. One of the curators who seemed particularly taken with Fallah’s work was Denise Proctor, CEO of the Noise charity. Also judging the works of Fine Art was Tim Marlow, Director of Exhibitions at White Cube and award-winning broadcaster, along with other selected artists.

Fallah has previously exhibited her work in the Lost/Find exhibition at Oxford Brookes University and at Free Range London where a representative of Noise had discovered her work. On her experiences, Fallah said that she was “a bit apprehensive” explaining why “an impressive line-up of top creative industry professionals” should choose her work. She also mentioned that she was “surprised” to have seven commendations, and feels proud of her achievement.

The Noise Festival is running from September until November this year. It exhibits artists in many areas: fashion, architecture, music & arts, photography, fine art, games & interactive, film, illustration, print/zines, comedy/spoken word, enterprise/underground music, advertising, and product design.
