Her works have been shown in numerous exhibitions in different places like Iran, Turkey, Australia, Netherlands, and Belgium. Najdi uses color and composition to portray layers of time and relativity. Flowers are some of the most prominent elements in her paintings alluding to hope, feminism, and ephemerality of human life, which are the main focuses of her artworks. One of her signature techniques is converting her subjects into negative not only to strip them of identity but also to break all bounds with any specific time and location. She aspires to convey the depth of human emotions and their relenting fortitude and steadfastness by addressing current social issues regarding her home country of Iran. Najdi lives and works in Tabriz, Iran.
