Artist Statement IMAGEKIND: ARTIST BIO — Nawfal Johnson Nur — My Photographist Beginnings:
When I pick up my camera...when I compose the subjects in the frame...and, when I plan and set up my lighting, I have one thing in mind: To take a better photograph than the last time.

I have been using a camera as a hobbyist since I was 12 years old, and then as a freelance professional (starting in 1998). I have had a camera in my hands, designing art photography, or working for clients, for 42 years.

Photography is a Madness for Me — My Work:
I have been a long-time Freelance Stage & Dance Photographer; nevertheless, I focus much of my energy designing fine art Abstract, and, Abstract Expressionism Photography. I also design SMOKE-ART PHOTOGRAPHY, and that is the art style I focused on in my 2011 book, titled, ETHEREAL DREAMS and HOPE.

I create and design fine art, abstract photographs of my own abstract expressionism paintings. I also design many of my abstract artworks from photographs I capture out in the urban environment as I walk around, investigating and photographing things I see in detail.

As an artist, I love working with alcohol-based permanent ink, acrylic paints, art pens, and watercolour pencils. However, my finished art pieces are usually photographs.

Art is a madness for me because I must be working on new artwork all the time — I must be doing artwork even IF I feel like hell, and IF I'm thinking my life is being pulled into a Black Hole. I must still be doing photography or working on one or more pen artworks, whether I am in a state of happiness, or in a state of despair. Art and Photography are an integral part of my life.


My Artistic Influences:
My main artistic influences are Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. As for photographic influences, I have always drawn inspiration from Carl Fischer, and Andreas Feininger. Depending on my mood, I draw a lot of inspiration from listening to music as I work. Presently, my favourite Classical music is from Vivaldi and Bach. If I'm not listening to Classical, I get energy from Very Heavy Metal groups, for example, Fallujah, Jinger, and Sylosis.

I was born in 1965, in Lincoln, Nebraska, and in 1994, I moved to Penang Island, Malaysia.
