Nedim Nazerali is a Visual Artist, Photographer and Director. In 2008 he began a career as a portrait photographer after graduating with a BA in Fashion Photography at London College of Fashion. Over many years he photographed promotional and editorial portraits for people in the creative and entertainment industries, whilst shooting advertising and commercial work for some of the worlds most prestigious brands including Samsung, Cartier, Bates Hats, Ozwald Boateng and Topshop among others.
As a director he has produced numerous music videos, has shot multiple album artworks and promotional images for the likes of Rita Ora, Leonn, Inglorious and 5-time Grammy Award winning The Swingles.
In 2017, Ned worked on a two-year project with musician and performer Wrenne to direct film for her multi-media show. During this time a unique style of art flourished within his visual language. Inspired by a narrative about the struggle between our two selves, Ned wanted to capture Wrenne's true soul. He combined body paint with photography, stripping away Wrenne’s social identity and transforming her into a released soul in bodily form on Earth, which would find her in the stillness of her highest self.
The image was greatly admired and was used for her album artwork and European campaign tour. It was also featured on the front cover of the Luxury Edinburgh Magazine during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Since, Ned has continued to develop his artwork and has used his technique with artists in music videos as well as for numerous album covers. Most recently he has been producing and exhibiting personal works under the name 'NART', where he body paint his subjects like a fresh canvas and transforms them into avatars of universal messages, exploring themes such as identity and the limitless possibilities of the human spirit. Ned displays his tactile fine art with innovative technology including LED Lightboxes, Projections and Large Photographic Prints creating an interactive and immersive experience for his audience, whilst strengthening the sense of unity within our communities
