Rising Stars: Meet Nai Turner

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nai Turner. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Nai Turner, Owner of Sideline Images, is an Artist whose humble, soft-spoken demeanor is a stark contrast to the political statements she presents to the world through her work. A self-taught painter who classifies her style as a hybrid of realism, pop, and street art, she began painting in 2016 following a stint in the army.

The craft that served as a coping mechanism for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), has helped Turner connect with her thoughts on what’s happening in the world, sharing it by way of creative expression in her work. She’s also recently released a clothing line “Unconfined Collection”.

Unconfined collection by Nai Turner features intricately embroidered and hand-painted clothing to spice up your personality and give you the driving force to unbox yourself.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
My biggest obstacle has been organizing my thoughts. I have so many ideas it’s hard to focus on at times. Some people just see me as an artist. However, I love fashion and refuse to box myself in. I turned my biggest challenge into a brand. I will share myself with my audience in everything I pursue!

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?

Each piece of this collection is designed with love and passion. Each T-Shirt and Hoodie is not just high-quality but also carries a motivational message! It is meant to entice you to say goodbye to your ‘Boxed In’ life, diversify your thinking, dig into your hidden talents and take up a career that you will love. I have hand-painted the entire collection, making sure the message reaches straight to your heart and opens up your mind.

We have a simple mission, to inspire and motivate the people of today. To inspire a life full of freedom- the freedom to control and dictate your life and circumstances according to your interests. Enthusiasm and independent thinking are the hallmarks of our brand.

While challenging the status quo, we envision a place where it is normal to chase your interests instead of thinking one way. Our vision is to help you stand out from the crowd. We envision a world where your style depicts your true self.

Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
I see the art industry becoming more digital. NFTs is a new way of life for artists of every caliber. It’ll allow them to receive royalties like most music artists and actors. NFTs are the biggest shift in art I’ve seen in my era.
