Glaieul Samadani is an Iranian-American multidisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles. Glaieul has a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Cal State University, Northridge and has been working in the Design Industry and painting for over 30 years. Glaieul’s dynamic language of abstraction conveys a visceral engagement with music and lyrical influence to evoke a vibration and energy. Her oil paintings create chromatic color fields with rich layers of texture that take on a sculptural quality and pull the viewer into vibrant compositions with contrast and depth.


Her bold and gestural brushstrokes and use of palette knife are applied in layers. Over time this technique creates a unique physicality and spontaneity, resonating with influences of Abstract Expressionism and Color Field painting while creating her own individual style. Glaieul has exhibited in Los Angeles and is in private art collections in the United States.




I am driven by my desire to observe, analyze and interpret the world and capture it through vivid colors, lines, shapes, forms and textures. In search of inspiration for my work, I travel and fully immerse myself in new environments; experiencing cultures through music, fashion, architecture and the arts along with the people and the natural environment. I try to absorb and capture that energy and vibration with intention through my paintings. Painting with oil, I sculpt my work using a palette knife and a brush, considering the effects the layers of paint and light will have on the textures combined with the transparency of the colors that I superimpose. 

My work is constantly evolving and is influenced by Abstract Expressionism, Color Field Painting, Impressionism, and photography. All my work stems from an idea or detail with an organic approach that I bring to life through my paintings. I leave room for the imagination, imperfection, sensation, and emotion, to show that aesthetic beauty can emerge from a simple vision. At times chaotic, serene, mysterious or romantic, each of my works should be viewed independently. The moment my painting catches your eye, a new energy and journey has begun.
