Artwork explanation

Nasir's paintings indicate that his culture is precious to him and overtime, it becomes more valuable. Therefore, the utilized colours by him are original Iranian colours, but the artist’s regard is creative and he never tries to imitate the structure of Iranian painting. The influence of the shining colours are amazingly appear in his artworks. However, he is inspired by the history of Western art, which, poses question in his mind and gives him the opportunity and concept of art. Thus, in the hidden layers of these mysterious artworks, which, with its amazing colours, objects shine in it like jewellery, he is looking for the deepest human issues. Utilizing the various cultures in which she lives, gives her a unique static structure. She gives us the opportunity to look at the universe from the view that at the first sight, it seems wired and scarce. A significant part of Nasir's artworks is drawing, which are independent of painting but like paintings, they are a diagrammatic of his existential structure and are formed in the same statistic framework. The world of drawing such as paintings are wide. Their range extends from the human’s heart to the boundary of daily life. From the empty moments to willingness for understanding something unknown and intangible, for the appearance of something hidden, from plans for a drama to record the beautiful moments, from the mixture of childhood memories to the current experience and the reality of daily occurrence.

Expert Opinion

“In Nasir’s artworks, it is the painting that speaks and his expression, emotion and visual world, are all united in painting. His drawing and paintings, do not disguise the message and in his artworks, audiences are faced with the purity and freedom of painting. All the rational elements, existential conditions of the human and reliable social references, represented in his artworks, have been created from his imagination and have not been inspired from anything. In the other word, the images in his artworks, are thoughts of the painting rather than a painting created by thoughts. His work, more than expressing the presence of a painterly mind, are the presence of the mentality of painting.”
