A London-based painter born in 1999, explores the intricacies of self-portraiture through a distinctive artistic practice. Graduating from City & Guilds of London Art School, Nagieva has earned recognition, including a shortlisting for the ACS Studio Prize. Central to her artistic identity is the use of Nevalyashka dolls as surrogates for self-portraiture, drawn from vivid childhood memories. Executed in both oil and watercolors, Nagieva's paintings transcend mere representation, becoming poignant time capsules that encapsulate personal expressions and offer glimpses into specific moments in time. Her evocative journey of recollection and self-discovery invites viewers to engage with the rich narrative woven into each piece.
