Deutsche Bank Collection LIVE - Meet the Artist
May 5, 2021, 6 pm
Mathematics is beautiful—this motto could be written over the works of Iranian artist Nima Nabavi. In filigree, mostly colored works on paper, he designs complicated, meticulously executed, yet harmonious structures consisting of up to 6,000 hand-drawn, hair-thin lines. Numbers, repetitions, and mathematics are the foundations of Nabavi's geometric abstractions, which he uses to make the structures of the world recognizable, to show the beauty inherent in it. The artist is self-taught, and,after spending twenty years in the USA, among other places, he now lives in Dubai.
Friedhelm Hütte, curator of the exhibition “Ways of Seeing Abstraction – Works from the Deutsche Bank Collection,” talks with Nima Nabavi about geometry, his artistic practice, the works in the exhibition, and much more.
