I am Tarahom Salmani. I was born in 1962. In 1984, I entered the Art University of Tehran (College of Campus) in the painting filed. I was graduated under the supervision of professors such as Iraj Karim Khan Zand, Mohammad Ebrahim Jafari, Jafar Roohbakhsh, Javad Hamidi, Mehdi Hosseini, and Farshid Maleki. I participated in several group exhibitions in Isfahan and Tehran, and I held a solo exhibition at Campus College. I presented my thesis titled “visual value of women’s artwork in Moghan” with the guidance of Professor Mohammad Ebrahim Jafari. Then, I was inevitably employed in the cultural department of a government office in order to provide a livelihood.
At that time, a part of my work was inevitably in the field of graphic arts. I twice won the first position in the design of the off-screen and … at the Theater festivals and design of the volume of several books etc. During this period, I could only participate in a few group exhibition in various cities as well as in Tehran, including: Ilustration Exhibition in the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art , 1991/Selected Fifth Biennial Exhibition of “Iranian Contemporary Painting” in the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, 1999/Selected Second Tehran Painting Symposium, 2014/Selected Eighth Festival of Tehran Visual Arts, 2015/EuroExpo Art Fair, 2017.Italy.
