An Art Exhibition with Nasim Javid

  • Words Bookstore Cafe (map)

Opening Night - Sunday, May 21st: 7pm to 9pm
Monday, May 22nd to Wednesday, May 24th: 10am to 6pm

Nasim Javid was introduced to traditional forms of arts from a very young age and as a child growing up in Iran she began taking courses in Islamic Arts and Miniatures. Although the restrictions and rigidness of the Islamic Art’s style were tremendously challenging for a young artist, these trainings deeply impacted her future artworks when she ventured back to her roots.

Her travels as a young adult in various countries enabled her to enrich her art knowledge  and she developed an interest in mixed-media.  She began to push her boundaries by experimenting with various mediums and techniques combined with her knowledge of Islamic art. By delving into the details of Islamic art, she understood the philosophy and the complexity that lies behind, where each color and line was deliberately employed to present harmony and unity and referred to a superior source.

In her recent artworks, she uses a more simplified version of Arabesque patterns, traditional motives and miniatures to give more freedom and energy to her work. This has enabled her to display the magnificence of Islamic art with a more contemporary approach.

All are welcome!
