Golnaz Jebelli is an Iranian artist, born in India and grew up in Europe, spending most of her childhood in Sweden. She took up formal painting lessons at the age of 9 and later moved to Paris to receive training at Parsons School of Design (2001-2004). She lives and works in London, and is a contemporary modern portrait painter in the UK. Golnaz is one of the best interior painters in London and regularly works with clients for interior commissions, to produce oil painting commission in UK both for homes and offices.
In October 2021, she had her first London Solo Exhibition at Campbell’s. She presented a collection of oil paintings called, Nomads. As an Iranian growing up and living in Europe, she has a particular cultural lens. Drawn by her Persian heritage, her ongoing project of painting Nomads, include Nomadic children. This body of work was inspired by the history and lives of Iranian Nomads, as well as being a celebration of her deep-rooted Persian heritage, of vivid colors, interwoven with personal memories of ancient crafts, such as weaving carpets and fabrics on the Silk Road.
Although the paintings tell the story of particular nomads, they are also about “Nomads” as an archetype. They speak to people on a deep level, to the part of the psyche, which is wandering, searching, usually for a place called Home. For Golnaz, art is her Home, and through this, she grows her roots. Art gives her life force connection. She connects to people through her art. Golnaz mainly works with private clients and receives commissions for portraits and abstract paintings. Her work is collected by distinguished collectors globally.
