London based Nick Sheehy (previously featured here) is an Australian-born artist and illustrator who explores the dreamlike, sometimes semi-autobiographical scenes and oddball characters that echo from his childhood imagination. After studying bronze sculpture in the wilds of Tasmania, Nick gave up on art only to re-discover his love of drawing whilst living in London, sparked by an interest in the city’s low brow art, illustration, street art, and graffiti.
Employing a laborious technique, building up layers of texture and thin color, his work infuses precision and attention to detail with random abstraction and clumsiness. He enjoys drawing various weird things for himself, exhibitions and publications.
