Nazim is a fine artist using traditional working methods to create art.

Drawing and painting are the fundamental elements to the realization of his artistic vision,
inspired by an array of themes that vary according to the temperament and compulsion
to create the artwork.

Myth, mysticism and metaphysics resonate within the subject matter,
exploring the visual harmonics which the artist may observe or imagine.


Nazim is a fine artist of over 30 years using traditional methods to create art. Drawing and painting form the basis of his practice in the pursuit of realizing his artistic vision. The multi-various themes explored in his art are derived from observations made to stimulate the imagination. His subject matter includes responses to nature, the human figure, sport, performing arts, poetry, and mythology. Many of the animals depicted in his work seem to embody a human essence, derived somewhat from the shamanism of Native American and Turkic tribes. As an artist, Nazim is constantly exploring the museums and galleries on two continents, noting and studying the old Masters, such as Michelangelo, Rubens, Caravaggio, Rodin, as well as the modern greats like Degas or Winslow Homer. Being a trans-Atlantic cultural commuter, Nazim gains access to the British Museum and National Gallery in London, the Metropolitan Museum and MOMA in New York City, the Getty and LACMA in Los Angeles, and The Louvre and Muse Rodin in Paris. The numerous solo and group shows Nazim has had in London and the USA have allowed collectors to acquire unique works of art by this original artist. Among the many commissions Nazim has had, the work created for the eminent actor, playwright, and director, Steven Berkoff, and actress and leading holistic author, Celeste Yarnall, has been outstanding.



RED LIONESS
RED LIONESS

"The POWER of LOVE came into me, and I became fierce like a LION" - Rumi

24" x 36" acrylic on canvas painting
Available - Price upon request

Red Lioness is an imagined meeting between two creatures, who chance upon each other as a happening. What ensues is somewhat mysterious, yet there is no menace. The tiny whirling dervish attests to the 'love bond' that binds all matter, as echoed by the ripples on the river. The totemic mysticism evoked by power animal symbolism gives the psychic impetus for the painting's creation.

Conceived and realized in California, Malibu Milonga is an initial response to place and sensibility, based on the personal impressions observed by the artist, that converged to create the picture. The light and blue sky, seeing horses on the Malibu beaches, and the experience of the Tango by the eminent Tanguero, Jorge Visconti, combined to form a dynamic poetic juxtaposition for a Californian serenade.
