Abdollah Nafisi

Abdollah Nafisib born in Tehran, Abdollah spent several years traveling with Iran's nomadic tribes, immersing himself in their craft legacy and studying the improvisation techniques of the handmade rugs and kilims created in direct response to their landscape.

After researching Oriental carpet design and photography, he subsequently trained in traditional Japanese joinery, and later pursued an MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, graduating in 2023. Now living and working in West Sussex in the United Kingdom, he has appeared as a master maker on the BBC, featured in a range of international publications and exhibited and performed in a number of shows in London, including Frieze 2022.

He has recently featured works at the Annely Juda Gallery, as part of the the ‘Gather To Loose’ exhibition with David Nash and Roger Ackling.
