"When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy," Rumi.
Hi there, I'm Nadia Djavanshir, a self-taught artist who loves to use the medium of watercolour paint to express my current state of mind. My paintings are a reflection of my internal feelings and external inspirations. They are part meditative, part study of the places I find beauty in.
I combine my appreciation of the oriental Persian/Indian miniature painting style with a looser more Western abstract style, a reflection perhaps of my own equally diverse identity. My paintings are an attempt to balance the fluidity and freedom that abstraction provides with the precise and restrained architectural detailing that I find so inspiring.
