About Nick


Each floppy disk used in the paintings has a history and story of its own. It represents the increasing pace of the modern life cycle, where objects are created, used and disposed of quicker than ever. To challenge this notion, as these personal artefacts of life are cast aside, the obsolete are now given new life and a renewed purpose by using them as a medium for art.

These are actually fantastic ideas in on the topic of blogging.

You have touched some pleasant factors here. Any way keep up
wrinting.

I love Nick's work. I based my G.C.S.E. art exam final piece on him!

Thanks Nick!

Sometimes we need to see the true nature of life. I enjoy beautiful art that does take me to the happier points, but I think that true art really makes us explore the darker corners of society, life, etc. This is beautiful and I know it will keep my brain active all day. Simply haunting.

The eyes are so haunting. Especially "Cache"

His pupils are so small and it looks like a calendar.

I love this, I feel like this is so original. I haven't seen anything like this before.

Whoever said this isn't art doesn't know what art is. The material used in and of itself conveys a meaning...which is what art is all about. I love this. I especially like some of the pieces of the woman on this site. They are really good. I would like to be able to recycle like this and the woman that made things out of recycled plastic.

Not what I really call art. More of a statement about today's lifestyle. Just a bit depressing to look at.
Take me away from the realities of life with beautiful art works!

The work on your site is incredible- these two pieces are great but I love in the other pieces how you incorporate color and body language to create unique organic shapes and negative space juxtaposed against the sharp angles and edges of the floppies. Very marketable work, as well. I can picture your work hanging in a lot of different settings:)
