“Ashabi”2024, oil and acrylic paint on wood panel, 16 x 24 inches


The idea of not capturing one’s likeness and just creating something that serves as the essence of the person, while keeping the face vague and anonymous was what Naychi enjoyed while creating this piece

Ashabi is a collection of inspirations, resources, and experiences, the ultimate driving force being Naychi’s zeal to create. While she used different materials, mediums, and processes to create Ashabi and Diadem, her methodology is consistent.
