NAHIR, Acrylic and Ink Painting Black Folk Art, painting of a man, by Artist Stacey Torres, artist


African American Art - NAHIR, The Wise Man

The name NAHIR has origins in Hebrew. It means Clear and Bright. It also translates to "The Wise Man."

My Nahir is a wise old man - his skin is the color of the earth in all it's glory, showing fields and rivers and rich minerals ... His eyes are not clouded nor dim - his light and wisdom shine on forever. He is NAHIR, THE WISE MAN.

My vision for Nahir came from a beautiful African man named Naheer. I painted him fierce and loving, all powerful like a lion, oozing with intelligence and dignity.

Nahir, The Wise Man ... Is a unique, one-of-a-kind portrait, created with Acrylic Paint and Ink, on heavy 14 x 11" acrylic paper. He is a man for all of my seasons.

I am offering one - and only one - original signed drawing of Nahir, the Wise Man for purchase on Etsy only ...
