Paintings by Naïma Namaste

Zuzana Ridzoňová Painting ''I am inspired by mainly the nature, the universe, love, death, the harmony. '' -Zuzana Ridzoňová

Naïma is a French artist living in the South West of France. She sees herself as a wild romantic artist. She loves to paint the sensation we experience in nature and so she specialized in portraits, abstract and realism, still life and impressionism (plein air painting), surrealism.

She often infuses her art with French poetry, natural elements like leaves, flowers she harvests in French gardens. Her main influences come from artists such as Arthur Rimbaud, Charles Baudelaire, Dali, Claude Monet but also pre-raphaelites painters John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. She is also fond of dutch artists for their floral still life paintings.

I paint Nature’s poetry and its wild expression. Blending wild animal, women and wild flowers. I feel it conveys softness and tenderness. I always follow my instinct and what speaks to my soul. – Naïma Namaste
