The Biography & Work of:
Golbanou Moghaddas
Location: San Francisco, CA
Bio: Golbanou is an Iranian Printmaker and Illustrator based in San Francisco. She moved from Tehran to London in 2008 where she completed an MA in Communication Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She is a winner of the Best of British Illustration 2011 and the illustrator of The Book of Barely Imagined Beings. In 2012 she was awarded an MFA fellowship from San Francisco Art Institute, which brought her to the west coast. She was a recipient of the Murphy and Cadogan Contemporary Art Award in 2013. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of London, Kensington Palace and Bankside Gallery in the UK, as well as SOMarts Cultural Center, Skylight Gallery of San Francisco Public Library, Kala Art Institute, Arc Gallery, and The Peninsula Museum of Art in the USA. She's currently an artist in residence at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California.

Within her work she invites the viewer to follow an unorthodox narrative, which is influenced by the old tradition of Persian story telling. The content is enriched by metaphors of philosophy, poetry and personal perceptions. Rather than political views, she aims to emphasize the personal.
