Highlighting ROAM Gallery Artist
Materials Scientist, Photographer & Painter
As Einstein once said, “the most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science”. Nature is the mysterious and just observing its mystical beauty evokes profound emotions of wonder and oneness, the source of true artistic creation.
Nima is a materials scientist by training. Over his career, he had the opportunity to study and use an extremely powerful tool, scanning electron microscope, which uses electron beam instead of visible light. This wonderful tool enables us to look at object in nano and micro scales and allows us see things not visible by any other means.
One day he wondered what a mosquito eye would like under electron microscope, and his journey to discover the beauty of tiny creatures and objects started. Over the past year, he used this tool to take artistic pictures of the micro-world from strange things he found in places where no one apparently pays attention. These photos take us to the unseen beauty of the world of tiny nature.
Absolutely no life was taken to prepare these samples and all subjects were naturally dead or lifeless as Nima respects life regardless of the degree of consciousness of living things.
Nima has always been interested in aesthetics and arts. He does conventional photography and oil painting as well. Nima’s passion is to show that science and art feed from the same root in our minds, the power of imagination.
