The barren landscapes from which the characters emerge reflect Flores personal history and experiences growing up in Honduras. There, he was affected by the social upheaval and the unjust wars of the Central American region. Flores' childhood experiences have deeply affected his outlook and as a response, are reflected in his work.

As a source of inspiration, he uses photographs taken with great passion, in travels in Canada, Central America, Mexico and Europe. The photographs of old walls, tree bark, stones, and rusted materials are sometimes transferred onto the surface of his paintings to capture a sense of time and spatial depth.

Nahm Flores was born in 1974 in Danli, Honduras and immigrated to Canada at age 17, after having lived in Mexico and the US. He studied Drawing and Painting at the Ontario College of Art & Design. In 2006, his work was selected among five other artists for the Biennale of Visual Art of Honduras. In conjunction, he participated in the Biennale of the Central America Isthmus in El Salvador. Nahm has also exhibited his work at the National Gallery of Fine Art in Tegucigalpa. This summer, he and his collaborators, Z'otz* Collective, participated in a multidisciplinary art residency in Trsic, Serbia.
