Exclusive Offering on the eve of the First London Show for Enigma Of Newyork, the "Of Mountains and Memories" series is an abstract painting series where each piece tells a story about how life looks from the birds eye view, and how we forget the colorful forces that help to transform us into the people we are today.
Nima Veiseh painting explores the dynamic nature of memory and its reflection of the human condition. His process is enabled by Hyperthymesia, an extremely rare condition of having highly superior memory -- an anomaly affecting 50 people worldwide, where he remembers every day of his life like film since the age of 15. His work renders natural moments of transition and connectivity into artistic expression, by exploring subjects as they journey through time. Hyperthymesia allows him to paint and see life in terms many layers. The dense overlays of paint involved in each piece, over 35 to 65 hours of continuous process spanning months, are true to the additive, integrated and ever changing nature of memory, and his technique is referential to gesturalism and abstractionism.
