Hind Nasser


Hind Nasser, born in Amman in 1940, graduated with a BA in History and Politics from Beirut College for Women (now the Lebanese American University) in 1961. She began studying painting under the artist Fahrelnissa Zeid in 1976. Dedicated to developing the cultural scene in her country, she started teaching and established several initiatives, including the Alumnae Club of her college, a Children’s Club for cultural activities, the Jordan Crafts Council, and the Jordan Ikebana chapter. Hind was also a founder of the National Music Conservatory of the Noor Al Hussein Foundation, where she served as Chairperson for 15 years, and a founding member of the Jordan Museum for Archaeology. In 1995, she founded the Jordan Arts and Crafts Center, Artisana, and later established her own gallery, Gallery 14.

Hind’s work is characterised by a constant flow of new ideas, often taking abstract forms ranging from free and spontaneous to more static and precise. Her exterior landscapes feature vibrant primary colours, while her interior landscapes are dominated by dark hues and energetic, gestural movements. Hind has held numerous solo and group exhibitions in Jordan, Abu Dhabi, and London.
