Nima Zaare Nahandi Iranian, b. 1983


Nima Zare Nahandi (b. 1983, Tehran) starts his works with research and analytically finds his way through his expressional concerns. Graduating in Pure Mathematics from the University of Tehran, he continued his studies in arts at Beaux-Arts de Paris and compled a two-year-long art residency at Casa de Vèlazquez in Madrid, developing his personal style and philosophy.

Nima Zare Nahandi's delicate technique and ultra-fine details, like his approach to his subjects, develop over time, sometimes taking months of continuous work to evolve into the final oeuvre. In most of his recent works, using the most basic drawing material, pencil, in a man-against-machine challenge, he adds ultra-fine details to an already-detailed layer of archival print.
