Following tours of Egypt and the Middle East for the British Council over 2013-2014, Naz has spent spring 2015 in Egypt studying drawing, ritual and movement  as part of an Arts Council of England supported residency.  He has been working in the desert oasis of Siwa, in Cairo and in the port city of Alexandria, developing new contemporary works based on  traditional Egyptian arts and materials.

Naz is best known in London for his massive 2012 project THE KING'S LAND where he took over the whole of the condemned Kingsland housing estate (off Kingsland Rd in Hackney), and covered it with murals. (see www.nazirtanbouli.com) The work was featured extensively in London 2012 coverage and in the film Taking Over the King’s Land (2014) which premiered at Sheffield Docfest 2014.

Welcome to Studio75, artist run enterprise.

Please visit our extensive archive of projects.

Studio75 was founded as an artist-run space in London 2011. Located in Shoreditch, East London, the centre of the biggest artist community in Europe, the Studio was intended as an art hub and cultural and artistic space for the local community.

Studio 75 London was active for two and a half years, until the building was demolished as part of the East London regeneration. In this time we hosted 30 exhibiting artists and 22 film-makers, in exhibitions, screenings, artist exchanges, mini-lectures and debates, and mini-residencies as well as mural projects, and was featured in London and international media coverage during the 2012 Olympics. We were awarded the University of the Arts London’s 2012 Creative Enterprise Award, for Most Enterprising Project.

The purpose of Studio75 was to make places for artists regardless of age, practice, background or education, to share, collaborate and exhibit their work to people and local communities who are not usually involved in art and culture.
