Nargis received her Master’s Degree in Fine Arts at the Department of Painting & Pedagogy from the Kazakh National Pedagogical University in Almaty and her Bachelor’s Degree in Tapestry & Textile Design from the Department of Applied Arts at Almaty Art College.
Her artistic practice encompasses painting, drawing, tapestry and mixed media– all connected by one single desire – to see the nature of things. On this quest she explores subjects that seem unrelated at first sight. Whether abstract, figurative or ornamental, she starts with visible lines and enters hidden realms.
