Tala Madani

born 1981


Tala Madani (born 1981 in Tehran) is an artist based in Los Angeles, California, USA. She is a painter whose recurrent motifs include men, often made vulnerable, which gives the effect of reversing the conventionally objectified female body in painting. Her painting style is loose, incorporating gestural brushstrokes into figurative narrative scenes that often have a bizarre, fetishistic quality to them. The men in her paintings often appear to be ridiculed, clownish, dominated by perfumated space, Brechtian. The loose brushstrokes and flat pictorial space give an almost cartoon quality to her paintings.

She is represented by Pilar Corrias Gallery in London.
