Sara Nili



Sara is a representational painter. Born in 1980 in Tehran, her paintings seek to convey something of humanity and the intensity of our existence as individuals. Her work is about the human condition and reaches for the simple, hidden and fragile truth of our presence through the plasticity of image. This is a meditative search that for her, paint and only paint is able to convey.

Sara received her BA in painting in 2004. After a few years of writing and translating for Herfeh-Honarmand art magazine and painting in her studio and exhibiting in Aria Gallery and the Iranian artists Society she moved to New York, and received her MFA at the NY Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture in 2013.

Following her graduation she spent the summer at Chautauqua Institute on an artist residency and worked closely with Stanley Lewis. While there she also honed her skills as a printmaker.

After a well-received group show of her etchings, sugar lift and monotypes in Chautauqua’s Fowler – Kellogg Art Center, she exhibited in a group show in Brooklyn, at Warehouse Gallery and is showing in New York .
She is currently painting in her Brooklyn studio.
