About Nisreen

Nisreen Askar is a well-known abstract and landscape artist in the city of Mississauga. Her paintings reflect a personal journey towards understanding beauty in her surroundings. Her images evoke a vital response displayed in interpretations of giving and love, mood and emotion, an experience. Her fascinations with the constantly evolving patterns of nature inspire her, like notes on a sheet of music.

Painting is Nisreen’s passion and motivation: something she feels is genetically encoded, as her childhood inspiration was her father, a renowned artist. Graduating with honours in Fine Arts from Sheridan College and a Visual Art Diploma from the International Career School, Nisreen has received numerous accolades and awards for her work. The diversity of nature, heritage, people and culture of Mississauga have given her an endless stream of creative opportunities in the city she loves and calls home.

Artist Statement
My love for colour has called to me forever. My artistic work reflects the state of my senses, and my impressions and response to the aesthetic side of nature and the elements I experience every day. The translation of this through colours and textural relationships become my inspiration, my creativity and my presence.
