About the Artist
Featured on the BBC and NPR, Nima's unique training as both scientist and artist informs his perspective. At the MIT Media lab, he researched how systems and the natural world could be decomposed from moving parts into layers of visual representation. Training as scientist and engineer helped him develop his own instruments and enable his action painting technique, so that he can translate the many interacting layers of memory onto canvas.
Training formally as artist as well, he differentiates his process through the unique ability to see time differently, an ability enabled by a rare memory condition called Hyperthymesia. This condition is known to affect only 50 people worldwide, and he is the only to paint using this ability. The process involves dozens of layers in order to achieve the dynamic textures that respond differently depending on the surrounding space and lighting. He has trained at the Arts League of New York on 57th Street, The George Washington University, Georgetown University, Columbia University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
