"My artwork draws on influences from a variety of cultures. In general, I identify as strongly with poets, musicians, songwriters, etc. as with visual artists. In fact, I often struggle to understand visual artists."
Nic Dartnell’s photorealistic portraits capture traditions and culture. Dartnell also has a background in photography, which perhaps may explain his attention to detail. Nic is also well traveled, having spent his childhood in Malaysia where he first began experimenting with oil paints.
Dartnell's experience interacting with other cultures is represented in his work, providing an authenticity to his artistic vision. Dartnell also has a strong connection to the music community where he enjoyed commercial success at an early age when he created the album cover art for 1970’s rock band ‘Emerson, Lake & Palmer.’ Since then, Dartnell has exhibited his paintings across the UK and Europe, and has been commissioned for numerous private collections.
Nic Dartnell is currently based in Bristol, UK.
