capi b5041a413e310ff7024e9cbb838dea5c 01e05e1f3d3c2d6e5155c12782e980e2Born in Mumbai, India, Nafisa became aware of the impact humanity was having on wildlife at a young age.
From this awareness, his artistic path developed as a sharing and awareness of the fragility of our ecosystems.
After a few Asian interludes, she moved to Australia where one of her most successful series of works is that of the Australian wildflowers, chosen for their resilience to extreme climatic conditions. With his "flowers" she won the first prize at the Florence Biennale in 2007.
Italy and Tuscany in particular have long been the destination of her travels but from the date of that prestigious recognition her frequentation with Italy becomes assiduous and habitual: "I was born in Mumbai and raised in Hong Kong and Australia, but my heart has remained in Florence” says the artist with a smile.

In a short sentence all the love that Nafisa Naomi feels for the capital of the Italian Renaissance. In a splendid volume entitled TUSCAN TEMPTATIONS, with great attention to graphics, the artist presents a collection of works with mixed techniques (drawing, ink, watercolor) handcrafted printed on felt-marked paper, the result of twenty years of pilgrimage (these are her words) in Tuscany. Nafisa conceived the volume on the occasione of the 160th anniversy of Italy's unification.

With the collaboration of the Italian Cultural Institute and the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Sydney, the volume will be presented on March 17, 2021 at the Art Gallery of NSW in two subsequent appointments: from 5 to 6.30 pm and then from 7 to 8.30 pm.
