Nicholas Peart (1983-) is an English multi-media artist. His paintings are inspired through perpetually looking deep inside himself. Once when asked to describe his work he replied, ''I paint my feelings''. For him this is an integral part to understanding his work and its development. It is of great importance to him that his paintings are connected to things which are permanent, primordial and, above all, universal.
Recently, Nicholas has been making short films. His debut was a collaborative film entitled 'Into/Out Of The Blue' which was made as part of the Rainbow exhibition for the 2012 London Bienalle, directed and founded by the Filipino artist David Medalla. To date he has made, and collaborated on, seven short films.
In 2008 he embarked on a two year journey across Latin America. He began his journey in the city of Los Angeles and then proceeded to travel overland, via buses and at two stages via boat, all the way to the Argentinian city of Ushuaia located at the bottom tip of the South American continent before ending his journey in the city of Rio de Janeiro.
Nicholas also writes poetry and since 2004 has written over three volumes of collected poems. The first of these volumes will be published in 2014.
Nicholas has exhibited his work extensively around London. Some of the places he has exhibited at include the OvalHouse Gallery, CGP, the Menier Gallery, the Espacio Gallery, the House Gallery and the Red Gate Gallery. He is a member of the Espacio Gallery.
