Golnaz Fathi is a young Iranian artist whose paintings have been exhibited in a number of important galleries and museums in the Middle East, Europe and the United States over the past twelve years. Her work is transnational both in conception and in execution as it incorporates her extensive training in traditional Iranian calligraphy, graphic design, painting (self taught), and autobiography.

Golnaz Fathitrained for six years within the Calligraphy Association of Iran, practicing the script for over seven hours a day. She was the first woman to win an award for Ketabat (a genre of calligraphy). The rigor of the discipline is evident in these paintings.
An homage to Nizar Qabbani. In this installation, a room was created in The Third Line Gallery (Dubai) in which Golnaz employed to become the space where the work of Nizar Qabbani is appreciated. A return to her signature calligraphy style, and the employment of the poems of Nizar Qabbani and his celebration of love and womanhood highlight the most important components that generate a different set of emotions for the viewers. In addition, Golnaz employed Black and white colors with a hint of red, through paint and rose petals, to depict a heightened emotional capacity of the theme.
