Khashayar Naimanan

Khashayar Naimanan, born in London in 1976, began his career as a graffiti sprayer and photographer at the age of 15. Even during his studies at London's Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art, he was interested in possible forms of veiling: He designed items of clothing with hidden pockets or fused valuable materials into nails, the shaft of which should be hidden from view of others. For the Nymphenburg-Service Hidden Wealth, he simply reversed the existing conventions: The decor is hand painted on the bottom of the porcelain, while only the brand mark of Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg can be seen on the top. The staging includes a mirrored table that reveals the precious painting at a second glance.
