Ladan Alavi was born in 1960 in Tehran; Iran. She earned her Master’s degree in Art from the Art and Architecture faculty, As an official member of the Society of Painters (S.I.P), she has over 30 years experience in painting. Ladan received an honorary diploma from Azad University in the National Iranian Undergraduate Festival but she claims that although university and university professors play an important role in a student’s education, the most important studio for them is the studio of life; life with all its ups and downs is what refines the artist’s acquisitive soul.
She has had a number of solo exhibitions, the last being in 2014, held in Persian Idea Art Gallery. In addition, she has taken part in more than 30 joint exhibitions and contributed to several exhibitions raising money for Mahak Charity Organization for Children.
Women and children hold a special place in her paintings, she affirms that “an artist cannot grow in seclusion and must be involved in society”. She believes that art deepens ones outlook on life.
In relation to the colors that have been used in her paintings, she says, “I try to extract brilliant colors which take one out of gloom and darkness, into hope and life.
From out of misery, I am reborn and God helps me along the way, so I present the gift of brilliant and happy colors to my viewers. From her point of view life means a song of hope in our hearts.
