Much like the name of his upcoming show, A Real Person Standing In A Cartoon Room, artist Nick Zaremba’s everyday life consists of just that – multi-colored materials, scraps and canvas squares that engulf him as he works in his studio.
The Boston-based artist has developed a multifaceted style of art that combines influential elements of skateboarding and graffiti, with colorful symbolism and a DIY attitude that reflect everyday chance and the world around him. Nick has the ability to playfully display the human figure, landscapes, nature and buildings in a way that draws the audience in and makes them tale a closer look.
Zaremba’s upcoming exhibition, which opens tomorrow September 1, at Seattle’s Flatcolor Gallery, will undoubtedly take the audience on a journey through the artist’s hyperactive mind, showcasing his own interpretation of his artistically concentrated life on the canvas squares he’s pieced together. Nick works in layers, creating rich textures that he applies his drawings and paintings to. His beautiful collage-like paintings ask for your attention with his signature color-palette, and beg the viewer to dive head first into the small details and markings he makes with a spray-can and brush.
Nick Zaremba’s A Real Person Standing In A Cartoon Room, opens tomorrow with a reception from 5-9pm, and will run through September 30. His brother, Matt Zaremba will be showing a series of his signature black and white illustrations in the upstairs gallery.
