NAM is a young yet seasoned painter/photographer/graphic designer that loves the modern architecture, white space, vintage 50s furniture, traveling, photography, painting, drawing, web, polaroid, conversation, space, and doing good.
My art works is the result of my subconscious thoughts and most of the times these subconscious thoughts are as much a mystery to me as they are to you. Sometimes I am able to interpret my thoughts through visual, but most of the times I cannot and I will not try to decipher them. I just let them live as they are, like art never asked me nor forced me to intellectualize anything I do.
My influences are first and foremost everything that I see, feel and experience, but I’ve always loved nature especially having grown up on a farm. I love architecture particularly Deconstructivist Modern Architecture. And photography plays an important role in my work, second only to painting. Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ansel Adams, Halim Al-Karim, David Bailey, Robert Mapplethorpe, Andy Warhol, are some of my favorite photographers. The artists I most admire are Claude Monet, Barnett Newman, Pat Steir, Raoul de Keyser, Marlene Dumas, Cy Twombly, Mark Rothko, Robert Ryman, and Hung Liu.
