On this site you will find the works of Belgian artist Nan Yar.
Nan Yar is an expression borrowed from Old-Hindi Tamil, one of the oldest languages in the world. It is closely related to the Sanskrit and means 'Who am I'.
Nan Yar works as independent artist and used to coach children at schools by means of projects about philosophy and creativity. She finished mentor Unit 1 Masterclass philosophy 2009 : CoPI (Community of Philosophical Inquiry Unit 1) with prof. Catherine McCall (Glasgow)
Besides writing essays on reflections around ethics and philosophy, Nan Yar makes paintings on order. You will find a number of her works exposed and represented by gallerist Harry Alexis, Gallery Knokke, Zeedijk 708.
Nan Yar reflects in her works the finer tuned spirit as well as the struggle of surviving up and underneath the surface of a hurt society and how pain and scars can be transformed and even transcend in strength, awe and art.
Nan Yar launches her 'Stigmata' technique at the dawn of new vision on primordial awareness within the hurtful debacle of life's vulnerable integrity.
The used materials Nan Yar works with are of the highest professional quality and the canvas frames are manufactured by the Dutch expert company Artel.
Nan Yar produces paintings on personal request, size and demand. For projects, she visits your home and shares advice.
At this moment Nan Yar produces international art work in The Netherlands, France, Luxembourg, Germany and Belgium.
Nan Yar has her own Open Atelier at the coast where she also lives. You can find new updates and a profound reflection of her works on this facebook page and on her website www.nanyar.eu.
Please feel invited to visit the gallery Knokke, Zeedijk 708 Belgium.
Nan Yar studies ethics and lives by a non alcoholic and vegetarian lifestyle.
