Nargess Hashemi was born in Iran in 1978. After studying Fine Art at the University of Tehran, she has since had several solo shows in Tehran including at Mah Art Gallery and Aaran Gallery. She has also exhibited in France with ‘Iranian Spring’ (2004), an exhibition of six artists who are inspired by the art of Persian miniature painting and poetry selected by the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, and in the US, a touring group show entitled ‘Wishes and Dreams: Iran’s New Generation Emerges ‘ (2007). Wrap Me Up In You represents her second solo show in Dubai. Stories From The Boudoir, her previous exhibition with B21, explored scenes and moments from her past in meticulously painted compositions of millions of tiny lines. The works, like their emotive subject matter, seem to bristle before the viewer’s eyes.

Reflections on her traditional family life, her upbringing and instances from her childhood are themes often found in her work. Hashemi creates boldly personal art; and this continues into Wrap Me Up In You. She currently lives and works in Tehran.
