Nagib Karsan was born in Tanzania and spent his childhood years in Africa and at boarding school in the UK.
Enjoying art from an early age he undertook a six-month course in Kenya before embarking on a varied career in business. The late 1990s brought a less hectic lifestyle and the time to rediscover his interest in art. During this period he explored a wide variety of subjects and media and found inspiration in the work of Frank Webb in the style of Design Impressionism, mostly in watercolour. He is now painting regularly and over recent years has particularly enjoyed working in mixed media, finding the freedom offered by this medium more suited to his personality and style. Typically he applies a collage of paper to the image surface before and during the application of paint which adds depth and texture to the finished piece.
Currently residing in Surrey, he is a member of the Dorking Group of Artists and the Guildford Art Society and exhibits regularly in the area. He is also on the team at Buckingham Fine Art Publishers Ltd and is represented in galleries throughout the UK.
