Nahid Khaki is a Persian-born American painter and photographer with a BFA in painting and a MA emphasizing Art and Archaeology of the Ancient Near East from the University of Texas at Austin.

Artist's Statement:

My art is personal, pure and honest and it reflects all the changes that take place in my life. My style is mostly figurative abstract. In my paintings color, abstract shapes and textural effects are emphasized. In my drawings the focus is on the movements and the essence of the figure rather than the details. In my photography, I seek and achieve a certain level of peace, quietude, simplicity, zen, and organization despite the unrest in my world. Life is presented in a simple and understandable manner unlike reality. I use my camera as a tool to paint with my eyes, except the painting has already been created outside of me. I find pieces of this amazing painting with the aid of my camera. In general, my art reflects my life with all my happiness, sadness, zest, angst, and all the emotions I experience.
