Krista Nassi

Krista Nassi
Born in Iran
Lives and works in USA

Krista Nassi is an Iranian-American artist best known for her outspoken installations and paintings. Evocative and impressionistic, her paintings truly reflect the whimsy and sensitivity of their artisan. The subjects of her installations inspire thought and are deeply reflective of the modern and kaleidoscopic conditions of life. Embedded in each piece is a narrative of a woman whose voice and message is patient yet brazen, feminine yet fierce. Krista’s vision is a bold display of earnest yearning for harmony and justice.
