Fakhria Nezami was born a refugee in Peshawar, Pakistan, in 1989. She spent the first 17 years of her life there before returning to Afghanistan to enroll at the Turquoise Mountain Institute for Afghan Arts and Architecture. Fakhria specialises in the technique of nuqtapardazi, a kind of pointillism in which the tip of the brush is used to dab thousands of tiny marks on the page. Fakhria's work has been exhibited at the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha and in London's Leighton House Museum. She has now become a teacher at the Turquoise Mountain Institute.
