Artistic expression and the universe

Artist Linda Niali debuted her new collection of artwork at a private preview in a chic and cozy villa in Miami last Thursday night.


Naili who is known for her clothing line Testefy describes her paintings as celebrations of the universe. Her acrylic works are uniquely painted on snake skin and alligator skin as well. The artist says that she draws inspiration from her culture, quantum physics and astronomy to name a few. The artists background is a mixture of Indian, Italian and Persian. The colors of my paintings evoke a mixture of elements, the matching of Helium, Hydrogen and Methane, Naili said. These tracks of asteroids and shooting stars that disappear into the ocean, their adventures in the Milky Way excite and inspire me." Nialis rapid ascent into artistic popularity is the stuff that dreams are made of and should serve as inspiration to those who only have their dreams to stand on. Naili is a self-taught artist who has been painting for less than a year, but the price of her paintings start at the three thousand dollar mark. For Naili its all about painting what comes naturally to the artist. I paint do mostly abstract and nature inspired pieces because that is what I am comfortable with, Naili said. The artist is expected to show at Art Week 2012 in Miami Beach. Nailis masterpiece has been valued at $40,000. By Julia Samuelsjsamuels@miamitimesonline.com
