Steven Naifeh’s tessellated, geometric forms are influenced by Middle Eastern architecture and textiles and boast the colors and playfulness of Op art. A Pulitzer Prize–winning biographer, businessman, and artist, Naifeh adapts geometric formulae to large-scale art. His floor–mounted Saida XXXVI, for example, arranges individual copper-plated steel squares to form a star–shaped whole, while his “Uzbek” series uses square panels and LED backlights to generate traditional Iranian whirlpool designs. As the first person to have a solo art show in Abu Dhabi, Naifeh employs decorative themes to expose shared visual cultures that transcend political ideologies. His combination of sleek Minimalism and traditional patterns created from positive and negative space merge ancient Arab imagery with a 21st–century Western sensibility.
