Nida Bangash is a Visual Artist, born in Iran and brought up in Pakistan. She is trained in the traditions of Persian and South Asian miniatures and experienced in employing these techniques in contemporary art. Her previous studies explored themes from abstraction: deconstruction or reconstruction; to the political: cultural or social; and from the ephemeral: subjective or objective; to the structural: substantial or permanent .
The complexity and diversity of Bangash’s identity shapes her art practice and her understanding of the world. Her roots in cultures with their rich history of sharing and influencing one another, in particular miniature painting (during the Mughal era), has exposed her to diverse worlds of pattern. Pattern sits at the centre of Bangash’s art practice. Her works use the language of patterns as a means of weaving together the complexities of her cross-cultural experiences.
