NEW YORK.- Nohra Haime Gallery announces the addition of Nessim Bassan to their roster of artists. Nessim Bassan was born in Panamá City in 1950. Bassan started exhibiting very early on, in 1968, where he found great success. His art was admired and valued by renowned art critics and curators such as Thomas Messer from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and Lester Cooke from the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. In 1970, Jos Gomez-Sicre, invited him to exhibit at the Organization of American States in Washington DC, which later lead to his participation in the 1981 Sao Paulo Biennial. After this astonishing start to his artistic career, he took a break from the art world and dedicated his time to his family, and began painting for himself.

During the late 1990s, he started painting every day, and fully dedicated his time to his art. He started to further explore kinetic art, incorporating wood and paint. His take on kinetics has a strong modern geometric abstract aesthetic, resulting in hundreds of layers of paint and interwoven textures, evoking conceptual fantasies. This technique further reflects a perfect harmony between controlled mathematical measurements, oscillating between gravity and optical illusions that are seemingly simple yet intricate. The allurement in Bassan's infinite compositions is that they are delicate and elegant optical illusions, with an impeccable balance and visual precision.

Nessim Bassan currently has a significant exhibition that began in November of 2022, at the Contemporary Art Museum in Panamá, that will later to travel to the National Identity Museum of Honduras, The Museum of Art of El Salvador and will end at the Museum of Modern Art Carlos Mérida in Guatemala. The artist lives and works in Panamá.
