Nicolas Party

Born 1980
Hometown Lausanne, Switzerland
Lives and Works Brussels, Belgium

Nicholas Party begins with objects that are familiar to us in our daily lives and renders them in a way that heightens or exaggerates their presence. Coffee pots, cups, cutlery, geometric shapes, plants and portraits—both human and animal—often appear in his work, which includes painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and curatorial projects. Party has a background as a graffiti artist and is influenced by Cezanne, Hockney and Giorgio Morandi.
