Nicholas Nadja portrays his elaborate imagination through a surreal but self tangible point of view for the world to see. At age 17 he started a year of training under Professional painter Ryan Shultz in Chicago. In 2009 he traveled to Europe for an art touring group all over Italy, and returned to Italy and France in 2012 for organic farming, creating, and developing more understanding of the world. He hopes to return again, but in a lengthier stay with citizenship to pursue the artist options Europe has to offer, and continue the ongoing process of art and fueling inspiration.
Now, at 19 years old, Nicholas stuns artists and art enthusiasts around the world, showing his minds beauty throug undeniably talented paintings. Working towards a BFA at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, he hopes to pursue a career in Europe and America developing a wide breadth of contacts and varied education.
Each painting, or work of art from Nicholas Nadja, is created from a space purely imaginative, yet paired with a traditional sense of the oil medium. The creation is genuinely true to the symbolism of the artist. The beauty of the bizarre and temptation of other realities centers his work. The poetry is visual, and the interaction between the medium and the artist is vividly shown. Delicately casted, the inner imagination is closely painted using the reality of modern times to structure the concentration of themes used.
