Girls Like Picasso
A look at cubism and it’s abstraction applied to start on fashion forward women.
Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Nicholas Anglin began his artistic journey as a graphic designer. With the life-changing opportunity to pursue his teenage/childhood dream of exploring the art scene in one of the world's toughest cities, New York which he now calls home.
Seeking inspiration, he used documentaries about the city's art scene to rekindle his passion and regain motivation. With his brush as resistance to the mundane, he began to paint under the moniker of Nuwarhol. To explore the artistic abyss of his surroundings - NU. To depict a state of mind, armed with conflict - WAR - or shrouded with joy. To leave him high on life - HOL - with art as his fuse.
Dedicated to making people rediscover their senses, he ingenuously fuses popular culture, street art, music, and fashion. Nuwarhol makes his subjects iconic through his use of bright colors and symbols, which have become signature features of his work. His style has often been compared to the likes of and often been described as a mash up of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. Nuwarhol is evidently working his way towards becoming one of the greats in the art scene.
