Nasiri (Al) Rafa

Exhibits at Beirut Exhibition Center

Rafa Al-Nasiri (b. Tikrit, 1940) has exhibited extensively throughout the Middle East, Europe and Asia including solo exhibitions at ITU Gallery, Hong Kong, 1963; National Museum of Fine Arts, Amman, 1981; Galerie Faris, Paris, 1983; Al Riwaq Gallery, Baghdad, 1986; Sharjah Museum, Sharjah, 1997; Atelierhaus Eglau, Kampen, Germany, 1999; Central Art Gallery, Beijing, 1989, and Green Art Gallery, Dubai, 2008. In 1998 he held a joint exhibition with Al-Azzawi at Gallery La Teinturerie, Paris and a show with Ali Talib in 1992 at the Shoman Foundation, Amman.

 

Al-Nasiri is a graduate of the Institute of Fine Arts in Baghdad (1959) and holds a BA in Printmaking from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing (1963) and a Diploma in the subject from The Gravura, Lisbon (where he received a scholarship from the Gulbenkian Foundation in 1969). He has derived much inspiration from the work of Chinese artists such as the ink paintings of Qi Baishi and Huang Yu Yi, Al-Nasiri's teacher at the Academy. His recent work is inspired by the poetry of Al-Mutanabbi, Al-Jawahiri, Mahmoud Darwish, Etel Adnan and May Muzaffar.
