About Me

Nicolas Wicher Abstract Painter from Silesia

Hi! My name is Nicolas, and I'm a self-taught artist. I've been painting since 2021.

My artworks are mostly abstract. I focus on the physical sensation of applying paint to different mediums. I love experimenting with randomization to create the impression that the artwork was somehow made unconsciously. I'm inspired by natural processes of pattern creation, especially erosion and rusting. Growing up in a post-industrial area with many abandoned and decaying factories has influenced my sense of beauty.

I also work with collage techniques, mixing my photography into paintings with layers of print and paper transfers. In these more figurative works, I love to showcase my area, Katowice and Silesia, in a unique way, creating almost an alternative reality and history.
