FOLDS is contemporary artist Zafir’s first solo show, featuring portraiture paintings of marginalised individuals from around Perth.
Born Nick Zafir in 1990, Zafir began his artistic career in 2012 at the completion of his Bachelor of Fine Arts and Art Design at Curtin University. He has since created a reputation for himself through continual determination and engagement in private commissions, public murals and collaborations.
Through his experience in public murals and his education in fine-arts, Zafir has found a comfortable medium in combining street art techniques influenced by fine-art expertise. The result is an energetic and evocative assortment of colours lending strongly to the personality of each individual portrait.
Available throughout the duration of the exhibition will be an accompanying book that will include each portrait and an intimate commentary between Zafir and the subject in each painting. The event is also free to enter, and free to gander.
Contemporary artist Zafir will exhibit his latest series at The Showcase Gallery at the North Metropolitan TAFE from the 20th to the 30th of July.
