Past

Dawn Of a New Day

Nazir Tanbouli

13 February, 2021 - 28 February, 2021

 

 

 

The journey has begun. A new dawn awaits. Moving through the swirling air, past the clouds and over the rooftops and spires of the city. We glide over landscapes of every place the artist has ever visited from post-industrial East Berlin to the spires of London, the green hills of Tuscany and the monumental forests of Canada – memory merged into dream. always moving toward a new place of being, a place of hope.
The dreamscapes of Tanbouli’s paintings are suffused with universal symbolism that points the way to a metaphysical liberation of the human spirit. The synergy of the union of opposites harnesses the energy of the horse, a symbol of power and freedom.

About the Artist

Nazir Tanboli was born in Alexandria in 1971. He started drawing and painting at the tender age of three and has never stopped since. He studied art and design at Alexandria University between 1989 and 1994 and worked as a painter, muralist, illustrator, and graphic designer before moving to the UK in 2002, where he has lived since. In 2010, he was awarded the MFA from Camberwell College of Arts, the University of the Arts London, where he studied book art and printmaking. He was awarded, by the same university, the Creative Enterprise Award 2012 for founding and managing the artist-run space Studio 75-London.

Between 2015 and 2020, he worked frequently in Alexandria. Currently, he lives and works in Cairo. 
Tabouli’s work is narrative, biographical, communicative, and often humorous. His characters and settings are a dreamlike rendering of all the people he knows and all the places he has visited, but his works frequently contain many global themes and symbols, making them both non-culturally specific and widely appealing. He has been exhibiting his work since 1990, with exhibitions in Egypt, the UK, the USA, Italy, Spain, Russia, Germany, and Dubai. His works are held in many public and private collections around the world.
