Talia Golchin is a contemporary multidisciplinary artist specialising in painting, collage, digital art and etching, exploring themes of ‘human behaviour, pop culture and the society at large’.
Originally from Tehran, Talia’s journey began as a young self taught artist where she discovered self expression through portraiture and figurative oil paintings. Her artistic skills where developed through natural ability, detailed observation and experimentation. These skills were further refined after moving to the UK where life drawing techniques where honed whilst studying art and design, as well as graduating with a degree in fashion design.
As a young graduate Talia created an art influenced fashion collection based on the true life story of Edinburgh author and film director Wayne Thallone who was raised in a brothel in Scotland (The Sunday Times, 30th November 2011). The humour and irony of the female characters in Wayne’s life story were depicted as hand drawn child like doodles of abstract female characters printed on silk. The collection was selected and showcased at London Graduate Fashion Week.

The collection was received with broad public acclamation and is being displayed at further shows around the world.
