Nasser Almulhim Saudi Arabia, b. 1988

B. Riyadh, 1988
Nasser Almulhim is a painter and sculptor based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from the University of West Florida in Pensacola, Florida. 
Utilising a highly saturated palette, absorbed from the Abstract Expressionism movement, Almulhim meditates upon the interaction between geometric and organic forms and their connection to the human psyche. His practice assumes a playful and intuitive approach to art-making, doubling as a therapeutic act that opens what the artist understands to be: “The gate of self-healing.” His work materialises his inner imagination, transposing it into two- and three-dimensional forms. The artist employs various methods to establish a spiritual healing process between inner energy and universal power. A principal theme within Nasser’s practice is the relationship between spirituality and mental processes, and the visual representation of this bond. He’s interested in the immediate impact of forms and colours and how their unification might establish rhythmic energies and speak of inner emotions.  Almulhim examines the relationship between colour and human behaviour patterns and unpacks the ways in which colour can stimulate energetic or psychological shifts. The dialogue between these elements unfolds throughout  Almulhim’s practice.
