Born in Tanzania, Nagib's childhood was split between his home in Dares Salaam on the Indian Ocean and boarding school in the UK where, as a teenager he was educated largely in Somerset. Here began his fascination with the West Country and its fishing villages, rugged coastlines and unpredictable weather. A fascination which has continued throughout his life, and which has provided much of the inspiration for his paintings in later years, along with the ever changing face and skyline of London.
Although he enjoyed painting and drawing from an early age, Nagib was encouraged to pursue a career in business and has only recently begun to explore his artistic nature. Now, with the luxury of time, he has slowly developed his technique from working mainly in watercolours to his present, loose style using mixed media and, very often, collage to capture the vibrancy and immediacy of his chosen scene.
