Saeideh Gilani studied in textile design at Dr. Shariati Technical University in Tehran. Painting began to interest her in the very early years of her undergraduate work. After taking several modules such as drawing and the foundations of visual arts, she became fascinated with the beauty of painting and realized that should follow her interests outside of university, so she started painting and drawing to further enhance her education.
As an abstract painter, she strives to mix her academic studies and her experiences with semiotics into her painting. This persistent unification of ideas has enabled Saeideh to marry both her professional and academic passions. This pushed her to expand her horizons and tap into new areas of painting she had not yet explored. There was an obvious freedom and greater personal expression with abstraction and it was then that she really began to flourish. Saeideh was deeply interested in the effects and impact of color, texture and the emotional responses to strong composition and design. She brings a subtle and sophisticated feeling to her paintings through a unique balance of texture and composition.
