18 – 30 June 2014 at Westminster Reference Library, 35 St Martin’s St, London WC2H 7HP
Opening 18 June 2014, at 7 pm.
Nazir Tanbouli presents Black Books an exhibition of artist books, together with a selection of his meditative Zen drawings.
He will show a selection from The Black Books, an ongoing project of dramatic ink drawings in books that he has been producing since May 2010. There are 49 books in the series to date, all hand drawn. They form a diary, an interplay between the artist’s conscious and unconscious mind, reflecting the artist’s technical, aesthetic and intellectual concerns about art and life.
“I am pleased to present Black Books in the historic surrounds of Westminster Reference Library, London’s biggest specialist collection of over 40,000 books on theatre, art and design.”
Nazir Tanbouli (BFA Alexandria, MA Camberwell) specializes in graphic drawing through a wide variety of formats from print making and book art to murals and drawing performance.

Sat 10 am – 5 pm
NazirTanbouli will also make a live performance of his large scale calligraphic Zen drawing.
Performance date and time: Saturday 21 June 3 pm
