Haris Nukem has been making a steady rise with his stylistic brand of portraiture since 2014. Nukem’s work documents the varied faces of human animalism, capturing moments of heightened freedom- be it through love, friendship, opulence, sex, or celebration. His subjects exhibit an unbridled ease, enabling him to capture their fall into various stages of indulgence, chaos or triumph. Haris’ following owes to his passion for vivacious characters, consistently as dark as they are vibrant. What the images offer in grit is matched equally by vivid emotion, while their provocative nature is offset by interesting, burning hues. As Nukem is delightfully aware of our capacity for carnal behaviour, he strives to pay respect and discipline. Subjects exude the strength of their conviction, portraying a “work hard, play hard” attitude. The result is a body of work which documents our intense relationships with ourselves, peers, partners and our work through a supremely impassioned lens.
