Laila Tara H (b.1995, London) is an Iranian-British artist with a specialty in contemporary Indo-Persian miniature painting based between Tehran and London. 

 

Raised across the world, she paints largely autobiographical reflections of a life navigating cultures. Using traditional methods from both East and West in a contemporary context, symbolism seeps through the imagery and into her means of making. Drawing inspiration from the rich history of miniature painting across the Middle East and South Asia while keeping a foot in simplicity and minimalism. Big empty spaces, small intricately detailed additions, telling stories.
