About the work
Tala Madani
Iranian-American, b. 1981
Follow

Tala Madani is known for creating paintings that look incisively and often irreverently at Middle-Eastern culture and gender issues. Madani typically represents male subjects in a child-like and simplified style, addressing themes including terrorism, tattoos, body hair removal, and prayer. In piss rainbow (2008), for example, a pyramid of men kneel in prayer, circular piss stains visible on each of their bottoms. Her paintings are often gestural and expressionistic, perhaps ironically echoing the painterly bravado attributed to male abstract artists of the mid 20th century.
