Reposted from • @andrew.salgado.art This Friday from 6-8pm my art-wife NADIA WAHEED opens her first European show at @beerslondon ... I’ve had many conversations with Nadia about how I see a LOT of myself in her and her art... she’s a Saudi-born Pakistani American artist and her work deals with spirituality, identity, and cultural displacement. I think you’re all gonna love it. @nadiakwd . ——- Contact @beerslondon / firstname.lastname@example.org for pricelist. . . #nadiawaheed #saudiart #pakistaniartist #americanartist #figurativeart #nirvana #figurativepainting #painting #londonexhibitions #art #contemporarypainting @yngspc @thegreatwomenartists @topainterstopaintings @painterspaintingpaintings @thedeancollection @underdogcollection #femalenude #femalepainters @timeoutart @timeoutlondon @stylistmagazine
