Nick Gentry biography in Biographies from the artzine on artrepublic.com

Nick Gentry portraits use a combination of obsolete media formats, making a comment on waste culture, life cycles and identity. Using old disks as a canvas, these artefacts are combined to create photo-fits and identities that may draw connections to the personal information that is forever locked down underneath the paint.

As an artist, Nick is inspired by the sociological impact of a new internet culture. His portraits use a combination of obsolete media formats, making a comment on waste culture, life cycles and identity. Using old disks as a canvas, these artefacts are combined to create photo-fits and identities that may draw connections to the personal information that is forever locked down underneath the paint.

A graduate of Central St Martins, Nick Gentry has swiftly become noted for his application of paint on a diverse range of media. He’s already exhibited in the UK, Miami and very recently Barcelona, with the artist not only receiving a rapturous reception, but also selling extremely well. At a recent Bonhams a Nick Gentry work sold at four times its estimate.
