Nathaniel Covington

Nathaniel Covington’s work is inspired by the monsters of Creature Feature movies, comic strips, trading cards, and toys. His style can be described as 21st-century folk art starring non-human terrestrial or extraterrestrial villains. Nathaniel’s practice spawns monsters that creep between his 3-D papier-mâché works and his 2-D paintings. A self-taught and imaginative individual, Covington begins his process with a pencil sketch on paper, then brings his monsters to life in the form of a painting on canvas, sculpture, or large-scale mural; many of which can be found clutching the walls of Nashville businesses.
