NIC DE JESUS
After honing his craft as a Staff Photographer and Art Director for an independent action sports magazine in his hometown of Cape Town, Nic emigrated to London in 2007. He spent the following years developing his techniques and researching Art History. It was Nic’s first sold-out solo exhibition in December 2015 titled Mare Incognitum in Brighton, UK that propelled him into his current drawing and painting practice as Artist & Tutor.
Nic’s work is concerned with the diminishing line between man & nature. He is currently at work on his collections, ‘Mare Incognitum’, ‘A Light In The Valley’ and ‘The Fire Next Time’. His work is in private collections around the world.
