Nedim Kufi

Nedim Kufi was born in Baghdad in 1962. Since 1994 he has been residing and working permanently in the Netherlands as a multidisciplinary visual artist. Kufi completed his education in Graphic Design and Multimedia with distinction at the HKU in the Netherlands in 2002. As a conceptual artist, he has put serious energy into many international events around the world. His work often compares Middle Eastern culture and European culture through images and thoughts vested in ambiguity and paradox. He is a strong believer in minimalism and through this he hopes to influence the audience’s perception through repetition and overlapping structures. He wishes to remind the viewers of their identities, cognition and social experiences. Kufi’s recent works manifest the narration of cultural identity in a historical dimension.
