Barana Saadat, born in Tehran, Iran 1991, has BA in computer engineering. Barana started painting professionally in 2009 and chose the oil colour as her specialized technique.

She has had many group exhibitions inside and outside of Iran and won the international NordArt festival prize 2018. 

The artist's psychological and anthropological concerns are the main characterize of her works. She is trying to portray the psychological contradictions by the symbolic use of animals and things along with figures and expressive faces.  These contradictions can result from the "imposed sufferings," especially sexism and "strong desire to live an original life."
