About the Artist
Nasser Almulhim (b. 1988, Riyadh) is a painter and sculptor based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from the University of West Florida in Pensacola, Florida. Utilizing a bright, saturated colour palette inspired by De Stijl and the New York School of Abstract Expressionism, Almulhim concentrates primarily on the interaction between geometrical, organic, and non-objective shapes. His practice assumes an intuitive approach to art making, doubling as a therapeutic act that opens what the artist calls, “The gate of self-healing.” His works represent his inner imagination and apply it into two-dimensional imagery. Concentrating primarily on the idea of abstraction and interaction of geometrical, organic and non-objective shapes. He employs various methods to create this spiritual healing process between the within energy and the universe power . A principle theme in Nasser work is the power of spirituality and how it could be represented by using colours as healing method to express the inner emotional the chaos and order within the soul to seek some answers in which the colour touches the soul itself. Also, study of colours in relation to human behaviour in which that colours could touch us energetically and psychologically. He aims to express both of these elements through his artworks. His interested in the idea of form and shapes and how each of them dances together to create rhythmic energies and healing force within him. His work is inspired from his examination of both the De Stijl and the abstract expressionism and speaks of the inner emotions and human psyche, making his works seems therapeutic.
