Born in Iran, Goli Mahallati graduated with a Bachelors from the University of Tehran in 1977 and with her Masters from AIC (American International College) in Massachusetts in 1979. She worked for several years studying for her Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts. The original oil paintings and limited edition giclee prints of artist Goli Mahallati often depict aspects of humanity. Her figurative images of individuals alone and in groups convey movement and strength. The visual impact of Mahallati’s compositions is enforced by her choice to work with a palette knife, rather than with the more traditional brush, which creates bold areas of color and texture.
Mahallati’s works are of kinship and admiration for the beauty and dignity of the ideal human spirit and form, one that is noble and free – which is sometimes captured best and made definitive in the abstract.
