I was born in cozy Madison, WI, but ever since that day I have not set foot on Wisconsin again. In all honesty, I haven’t really been actively avoiding this generous land of cheese and beer. Given the very attractive winters that this icebox of a state has to offer, I was happy that my parents decided to return to Colombia before my first birthday. I spent my first 17 years in BogotÃ¡ and after finishing High School I went to New York to study Illustration in SVA. After graduating I worked at Evergreene Painting Studios, a mural painting studio, and at The Studio, an illustration studio where I did animatics, storyboards, print jobs, together with some illustration jobs (paperbacks, jackets, etc). After two years of constant and diligently supervised drawing, I decided to go back home to Colombia and be free to paint full time. What was a hard decision at first, turned into the best career move. I have been able to paint what I love, and be surrounded by friends and family.
"I've know Nicolas' work for a while now, we were both in college at the same time and we both in some shows together back then. I've been a huge fan since then, This guys work is fearless, check out some of the epic multi figure pieces that he has on his site, they are incredible tour de forces. Also in a number of his pieces, Nicolas seems to have painted the air around his figures. I would love to paint with him someday."
