Untitled by Moataz Nasr

Creating works that allow the viewer a great freedom to explore, imagine and translate peacefully and independently, Nasr borrows and is deeply inspired by Egypt and Sufism. It is Nasr’s affinity with Sufism that is constant across his chosen path, dictating his concepts, his choices and his final creations. Sufism, defined by scholars as the inner, mystical dimension of Islam, has always fascinated Nasr. The spiritual and the worldly come into play at times forcefully, at others subtly, in his works, to help us search for the Alchemy of Happiness – alluding to one of the treatises of influential Persian Islamic thinker, Imam Al Ghazali.
