Meet Nagihan Seymour


Artist Nagihan Seymour

Nagihan is a British Turkish artist specialised in Tezhip, the art of illumination and sacred geometry. Although originally a materials engineer, she has been interested in art since her university years, studying traditional arts in her hometown of Istanbul.

Traditional manuscript illumination and ornamentation formed the main part of Nagihan’s studies, but as her style developed she started to combine classical geometrical designs with illumination, whilst adding her own modern twist. This has allowed Nagihan to create her own unique style, whilst staying true to traditional methods and rules.
