Nick Robles Biography
Nick Robles began his art career as a young boy with his first set of Crayola crayons, tempera paints and Elmer’s Glue. Sticking to his roots set deep in the 80s, Nick’s work retains a childish spirit with plenty of neon color and funky shapes to spare. Growing up in California, Nick developed a very go-with-the-flow attitude toward life that is reflected in his art; allowing the process of “making” to guide how the work develops. Nick began his work in printmaking while studying at Sonoma State University. It wasn’t until after he received his B.A. in studio art and moved to Portland Oregon, that he added a body of work in textiles and photography.
Now a resident of Brooklyn, New York, Nick established his studio where he works in a variety of mediums that include: prints, drawings, textiles, and photography. He continues to develop his own artwork while remaining active in a variety of arts related capacities, ranging from gallery assistant to curator. Nick’s focus is on further developing his work and establishing himself as an artist.
Nick Robles Artist Statement
By infusing personality, energy and sometimes life experience into inanimate material through portraiture I explore personal identity and what it is to be a conscious being. I experiment with different processes and unorthodox materials as I search for new applications and results that excite me all while allowing the images to evolve as I work to better explore this theme. Often working by the seat of my pants I frequently make new discoveries mid-shoot. As I work within each series, I find my work to be constantly changing and maturing much as we all do as we venture out into the world. The images I create reflect a playful childhood interests in my environment and the unknown.
