Nasim G. Pachi spent the first two decades of her life growing up in Iran — a country she feels passionate yet conflicted about and still calls her home. Her education, marriage and career have since moved her around Europe, West Africa and Southeast Asia.
Daily life on several continents showed her that people and their actions are as complicated beyond Iran’s borders as inside of them. The social, cultural and political paradoxes she encounters are her creative fuel. Fascinated by people and the choices they make, Nasim is constantly assessing her own identity and trying to understand how her upbringing and travels continue to mold it. She challenges her audience to comprehend the contrasts she presents in her aesthetically rich portraits.
Nasim paints with acrylic and oil. Exploring freedom and identity confronting culture and relegion, she places her subjects against bold patterns and tries to strip identifying elements from her works — she doesn’t want you to judge them based on faces and places.
Nasim received her Masters of Arts in Illustration form HAW Hamburg, Germany
She lives and works currently in Hong Kong.
