Inspired by her British, Turkish Cypriot & Pakistani heritage, Nurjan has, at the tender age of 23 years, emerged as one of London’s freshest and brightest creative stars. Her exotic influences are captured in her work, which is a fusion of styles and influences. Specializing in Swarovski crystals, Nurjan trained at the University of the Arts and began to explore different ways of personal expression through art fusing Eastern and Western inspiration.
Each piece is exclusive and never reproduced. Nurjan has been working on a special collection juxtaposing the sparkle and beauty of Swarovski crystal against more natural mediums like slate and copper.
As a branded partner for CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements, Nurjan has been commissioned by a number of celebrities including Kimora Lee Simmons and has her work in various private collections including Aisha and James Caan (of Dragons Den), Ahlya Fateh (MD of TataNaka and ex-editor of Tatler), Kristiane Backer (Author and TV presenter) and Faiza Seth (CEO of CasaForma).
Nurjan is exclusively represented by Mica Gallery, Chelsea and has exhibited for HRH Crown Prince of Malaysia, HRH Prince Hassan Bin Talal of Jordan and HRH Princess Badiyah of Jordan, Candida Arts Centre in Islington London as part of ‘WomenArTogether’ exhibition and presented a collaboration to the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister David Cameron at 10 Downing Street.
One of her Swarovski crystal pieces raised £12,500 at a charity auction for The James Caan Foundation.
More recently, Nurjan achieved above the estimated price at Sothebys' calligraphy sale in Doha called 'The Art of the Word'.
Nurjan is one of Mica's most high profile emerging artists and is featured in Bluechip Magazine (April, 2011) and Women & Home (March, 2011).
