EXPRESS YOUR FEELINGS

Build confidence in yourself!

Art is all about passion and conviction, and this comes from the confidence you have in yourself and therefore in the art that you create.

What Will You Create?

Rectangle 8.png

Since Abstract Expressionism is a form of self expression through art, it's important that we discover what it is that you want to express. It could be your attitude towards something or an emotion.

Once we have defined what it is that you want to convey, we will then look at the how. The what is just as important as the how since it gives the work substance. The composition will come down to a few basic elements: line, shape, color, form, texture, and space. The principles are: balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, and pattern. If applied correctly, these elements and principles will make all the difference in allowing you to express yourself in the best way possible. Similar to handwriting, sometimes it's unreadable and other times it's crystal clear. There is no right or wrong. It's all a question of legibility. It's important to remember that this is not a painting class but more of a workshop to help you recognise your own skills, strengthen your style, and give you confidence to express yourself freely.

The workshop includes:

  • An in-depth, digital workshop by Nassim Nasr

  • Tools and materials, curated for you, by Nassim

  • A live & recorded Q&A session with the artist

About The Artist

NASSIM // LEBANON

Based in Dubai, Nassim is a Lebanese-born self-taught student of Minimalism, Abstract Expressionism, and Action Painting. Nassim finds inspiration in the overlap of modern sensibilities with the complexities of the traditional. This comes through in his multi-layered, boldly textured compositions which feature scratches, scrapings, and rubbings – a physical manifestation of the eternally questioning mind. Nassim calls it “the interplay between the fundamentals – our nature, scientific absolutes, the building blocks of ordered society...and the reality that any external force could disrupt that order. Chaos looms in the blink of an eye.”

Nassim’s technique involves adding and subtracting multiple layers of non-representational painting, starting with the application of primary color onto canvas using brushes and scrapers.

About Abstract Expressionism

Abstract Expressionism was an American post–World War II art movement. It became a leading trend in Western painting during the 1950s. the movement developed was developed in New York in the 1940s & the 1950s.  The most recognized American Abstract Expressionist painters were Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, and Mark Rothko. In 1946, Art critic Robert Coates first applied the term “Abstract Expressionism” to American art, however, the term was used by Germany’s Der Sturm magazine in 1919.

The Term “Abstract Expressionism” is meant to encompass not only the work of painters who filled their canvases with fields of color &/or abstract shapes & forms, but also those who attacked their canvases with dribbles, splashes, or smears onto the canvas, using gestural expressions. The movement includes many different styles in paintings in terms of technique and quality of expression. Nevertheless, Abstract Expressionism has become the most accepted term for a group of artists who had much in common. They often use degrees of abstraction either by depicting forms unrealistically or, forms not comprehensible to the visible world (nonobjective). They emphasize freedom, spontaneity, and the expression of personal emotions.
