Born and raised in Egypt, Nadeen has always considered art to be an essential part of who she is. Nadeen studied Visual Arts in the American University in Cairo, and has taken countless art courses in various universities in Europe, namely the University of the Arts London (UAL) and the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts & Media in Venice, Italy. Nadeen’s approach in art is somewhat like a relationship between two people. There must be trust. Give and take. Trial and error. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn’t. There are no mistakes, no judgment, only experience. Nadeen believes this is important for anything to flourish. She prefers to blur the line between fiction and reality, and so this is evident in her work through her use of vibrant colors, abstract/contemporary style, and the incorporation of modern, real elements, as well as fictional ones. As a result, the final pieces are relatable, yet still open to interpretation, something that is extremely important to Nadeen, as she believes perspective is an art in its own right. Lately Nadeen’s work has been more centered around surrealism, as her inspiration is drawn from dreams and our tendency to neglect what isn’t practical or might seem too fictional to entertain. By shining a light on the details mostly overlooked by the casual onlooker, and the ones we take for granted, Nadeen hopes to bring out the authenticity and beauty that we truly have in the world, in a mystical, magical way that not only inspires a new appreciation for art, but also raises questions and moves us in a way we didn’t know we could be moved.
