About Tala Madani

Tala Madani’s paintings and animation approach issues of gender and taboo through humor, absurdity, and the grotesque. In her gestural style, male figures often appear in ridiculous physical scenarios-disemboweling themselves, vomiting on one another-which result out of the artist’s interest in exploring the ridiculous, profane, and humorous through her figures. Born in Tehran in 1981, Tala received her MFA in Painting from Yale University in 2006, and has exhibited internationally including shows at the New Museum in New York City, Haus der Kunst in Munich, Germany, and at the Saatchi Gallery in London, UK.
