FEATURED ARTIST

GOLNAZ PAYANI

Golnaz Payani

L’ombre des Oasis is Golnaz Payani’s first solo show at Praz-Delavallade in Paris. Golnaz Payani, who was born in Tehran and now lives in Paris, embodies this generation of artists who delve into their own life story to find the elements of a new contemporaneity. The delicacy of her works and the emotions they give rise to / are grounded in an attempt to exemplify a dual representation, one of paradise and lost happiness. After studying Painting at the Faculty of Art and Architecture of Tehran, Payani continued her studies at the Clermont-Ferrand School of Art, where she obtained a National Diploma in Fine Arts (BFA) in 2010 and a National Diploma in Plastic Expression (MFA) in 2013. Payani has exhibited extensively in France and abroad: DomaineM, Cérilly, FR, 2019, 2018 ; Mastre, Venise, IT, 2018 ; Paratissima, Turin, IT, 2017 ; 61ème salon de Montrouge, FR, 2016 La Trap, Pré-Saint-Gervais, FR, 2015.
