Today we’d like to introduce you to Nick Zaremba.
Nick (B.1979) is a multimedia visual artist, currently working in Boston.
Nick’s practices are ranging from handmade illustrations, artist books, prints, paintings, and digital graphics to site-specific 3D installations and large-scale mural work. His influences come from his background in drawing, graffiti art, his love of all types of cartoons and animations, art history, Pop culture, and symbolism.
He has exhibited his fine art all around the U.S. as well as Hong Kong and Canada. Most notably, he was part of a two-person exhibition at Gladstone Gallery in New York, as well as featured as one of the “40 Artists You Should Know” in the nationally juried publication; New American Painters and has also been acquired by prestigious collections, including Takashi Murakami’s Superflat Collection – From Shohaku and Rosanjin to Anselm Kiefer, which was shown at the Yokohama Museum of Art in Japan in 2016.
Nick’s commercial clients include Pepsi, Vans, Converse, Neiman Marcus, and Karmaloop among others.
Please tell us about your art.
My art seems to be currently traveling through different mediums these days, sometimes I’m working on digital graphics in Illustrator, then I’m arranging small wood sculptures, then I’m painting on canvas, then I’m using spray paint on a wall.
My message across it all is just pure communication whether it’s my current feelings or statements I come across in my everyday life all through the lenses of a cartoon world. Sometimes my artwork starts out with a direct plan and sometimes the image emerges out of just an abstract application of tangible materials.
Do you have any advice for other artists? Any lessons you wished you learned earlier?
My advice for other artists is just to DO, and MAKE all the time and stop thinking about who may see it, just OUTPUT!
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
RIght now the best place to see my whole body of work is my site and for more of a daily diary, you can follow me on Instagram.
