What is Nia Prima?

Nia means purpose in Arabic and Swahili. Islamic tradition says that every action is but by intention. To set out out with a true and marked intent is the essence of clarity. Prima means highest or first as in Prima Donna in Italian. Nia Prima is the marriage of East and West. It means first or highest. We set out to make an art magazine for the artist with high ideals. To showcase art with a conscious and a message.

Our Story

Each month Nia Prima will showcase artists from different branches of the arts, music, visual arts, literature, poetry etc.
