Nasir Nasrallah

Nasir Nasrallah (UAE) experiments with and synthesises materials, be they physical objects, ideas or theorems. His work is a highly personal response to his environment and the people and places he comes across. It is a direct result of his thoughts and feelings and his desire to communicate his inner life to the viewer. Nasir is driven by the desire to test new concepts and methodologies, and to utilise them where they can enrich his artwork. He is stimulated by the physical objects he collects and feels drawn to use in his work, such as toys, small consumer items, buttons, paper, wood, and pieces of hardware.

Nasir has a B.Eng in Telecommunication Engineering from Khalifa University in Sharjah. He took art courses at the Emirates Fine Arts Society whilst studying for his degree, and participated in exhibitions inside and outside the UAE, including the annual exhibition of the Emirates Fine Art Society and the Cairo Biennial in 2006. Nasrallah currently holds the position of Vice President of the Emirates Fine Art Society and is an Ambassador for The UAE Board on Books for Young People (UAEBBY).

He has had two solo exhibitions, in 2009 and 2011, and he won the First Prize award at the Emirates Fine Art Society’s 30th Annual Exhibition in 2012.
