Nima Veiseh

(USA 1985 -)


Nima Veiseh, an internationally recognized artist whose paintings reach the depths of memory and emotion, is one of 50 people in the world who is diagnosed with a condition known as hyperthymesia, in which feelings and memories are stored in the mind with incredible detail, being able to recall a distant memory as if it had occurred only days before.

Nima’s art is an abstraction of time, space and memory transformed onto canvas in an explosion of rich, vibrant color, dramatic texture and pure feeling, that inexplicably captures your mind’s eye and takes you on the journey of exploration and emotion that is the essence of Nima’s Art.

Nima’s masterpieces delve so deeply in the language of movement, flow, and ebb of life, love, and pain it makes the memory captured on canvas almost tangible. His love for art and humanity are plainly visible in his work and the painstaking process that makes Nima’s art come alive.

Nima’s process consists of layering different mediums, colors, and techniques to achieve texture beneath the colors. Nima uses a technique in layering which he created and most of his work contains up to 20 layers of paint, creating a visual feast for the mind.

Nima’s artistic journey began before his understanding of what hyperthymesia was and how it would shape his future. Nima was part of a pre-Olympic Taekwon-Do circuit in his youth and found the local museums and artwork to be a means of decompressing and relaxing.

Nima soon found himself retiring from the Olympic circuit and embarking on a new journey through artistic expression on canvas. An artist in the school of temporal abstractionism who has found a method of encapsulating and freezing in time the struggle of self-discovery brought forth by chaos and fading memories.

Nima’s work has been exhibited at Art Basel since 2014, Also a resident artist at the Janus Gallery.
