NIMI is an architect and street artist who likes to experiment with a variety of techniques, mediums and creative
processes in his finely-detailed murals and paintings.
he originates from Johannesburg, South Africa, grew up in London and is now based in Bergen Norway, he describes his
street art as storytelling and visual interaction, the narrative-based characters who bear, the identity of their past
and present squarely on their shoulders showing the strength of their character.
The figurative based art is often heavily laden by representations of their culture and identity as well as elements of both the man-made and natural worlds – telling the story of the origins and journey of the human condition.
He interweaves elements of national romanticism and naivety into strong honest tales and his work can be found on walls throughout Europe and Africa.
