‘A Familiar Stranger’ is a Giclee print by illustrative artist NadeemArt. The print is from a limited edition of 15. Printed onto 310gsm Hahnemuhle German Etching paper.
The work of contemporary artist NadeemArt is captivating in its intensity. His prints feature the recurring trope of the Nowhere Man, a faceless and emotive figure, capable of conveying the emotions of both artist and viewer in a subtly haunting way. ‘A Familiar Stranger’ reflects NadeemArt’s background as a Hollywood scenery artist: like a still from a film, a long, hyper-real vista stretches out before the Nowhere Man, in a bold, saturated palette of blue, pink and black. The Nowhere Man stands, in his ever hunched pose, quietly evoking a sense of both sadness and hope at once. There is real power in the image, not only aesthetically - through the filmic use of colour and composition - but emotionally, in its compelling poignancy and stirring sentiment. The print is signed and numbered by the artist.
