About The Artist

Nacim Ruintan-Tehrani is a multidisciplinary artist and designer based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She has a diverse professional background that spans across various domains in the field of art and design. Nacim holds three academic degrees, including a Master’s Degree in Industrial Design, and a Post-Baccalaureate Degree in Fine Arts from the University of North Florida. Her solid background in design has enabled her to map out complex structures for creating her mixed media sculptures. Papier-mâché, plaster, clay, metal, fabric, acrylic mediums and paints are some of the materials that she uses the most. In her creative process, Nacim enjoys the challenges of experimenting with different mediums and techniques and finding new and perhaps unexplored ways to express herself through her artworks. Nacim is truly passionate about art in all its forms and limitless expressions, and her artworks are predominantly inspired by nature and its infinite array of textures, colours, and shapes. Nacim is a Juried Member of the Alberta Society of Artists, and her artworks have been sold to private collections around the world.

Artist’s Statement

“While technological advancements have transformed our lives at a pace we could have never imagined, they have also pushed us further away from nature and wildlife in our modernized society. For most of us, embracing all living creatures, the whole of nature and its beauty is not a part of our everyday lives. The artworks in this collection are inspired by all the life that surrounds us. They reflect my lifelong love, empathy, compassion, and curiosity for all the animals and
creatures that we share this planet with. “Wild” evokes a sense of emotional connection to nature and all its inhabitants, urging you to contemplate all the beauty that is rapidly fading from our lives.”
