In her art, Joy Najm aspires to capture the essence of regeneration, primarily through the compelling medium of portraits and faces. Each brushstroke on her canvas embodies the intention of unveiling profound emotions concealed within the eyes, often referred to as the ‘windows to the soul.’ Her paintings are a reflection of the very core of humanity, revealing deep-seated emotions that reside within all of us.

Joy’s artwork centers on portraying the myriad emotions that people experience, exposing their vulnerabilities and authenticity. The eyes, with their mesmerizing depth, serve as mirrors reflecting the intricate layers of the human soul.

The process of regeneration, both on an individual and societal level, is pivotal for growth, and Joy intends for her paintings to act as catalysts for introspection, empathy, and unity.

As Joy Najm continues her artistic journey, her aspiration is to weave a tapestry of emotions and stories that resonate deeply with viewers, fostering a profound appreciation for the enduring spirit of humanity.
