Nasser Azam uses painting as a means of performance. Exploring extreme conditions, which in the past have included the ice deserts of Antarctica and zero-gravity. Azam also creates aggressively gestural, abstract splatters laid over photographs or maps. He is interested in the meditative qualities of expression, and the ways in which the human form manifests open, abstract possibilities usually only assigned to art. Prints done on mirror and aluminum further reflect the integration of the figure into the conceptual, visual experience. He began working in sculpture in 2008 and created several works in London, including “Athena” at the London City Airport, which holds the title of tallest bronze sculpture in the United Kingdom.
Azam has exhibited extensively in Birmingham, United Kingdom, at institutions including the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, The University of Aston, Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, and University of Birmingham. He participated in the 2008 Contemporary Art Fair in Istanbul, and has shown extensively in the County Hall Gallery at London’s County Hall.
