Golbanou Moghaddas is an Iranian-American narrative artist based in San Francisco, California. She holds an MFA from San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI), and an MA in communication design from Central Saint Martins College of Art in London, UK. Her visuals offer unorthodox narratives deeply rooted in her Persian heritage, enriched by metaphors and symbolism. She aims to transform the earthly unpleasantness into a setting akin to a beautiful Persian miniature. Her work expands from editorial illustrations to fine art etchings and drawings.
Moghaddas has been an affiliate artist at Headlands Center for the Arts, and a fellow at the Kala Art Institute in CA, as well as a scholarship awardee of Manhattan Graphics Center, and International Print Center New York (IPCNY)’s New Print Program awardee. She has exhibited widely in the UK and North America. Her work has been published by Granta Publication in London, UK, Les Belles Lettres in Paris, France, and is featured in both private and public collections.
