Maryam Lamei Harvani was born in 1985 in Iran.

In 2015, she was awarded the national emblem and, after graduating in graphics, she received the 2nd art emblem from the Iran MInistry of Science and Research. Throughout her projects, she has created some beautiful works by a combination of historical methods of Golomorgh and her creation.

She has attended more than 20 Iranian painting exhibitions in art museums, galleries and cultural centers, the most important of which can be considered holding individual exhibitions in Paris in 2009, as well as an exhibition in Instabul-Turkey 2019, and a live TV interview with Ulusal network Turkey 2019.
