Swiss artist Nicolas Party is a contemporary painter and sculptor. His works connect to Expressionism and Fauvism through his use of bright and playful colours, and he creates immersive environments for his exhibitions that tap into both the new and the familiar. Pastel is Party’s signature medium, and it allows him to explore dreamy and surrealist qualities in his work.
At the start of his carer, Party worked as a 3D animator, and as such this influenced his later work. Party explains “we’re so used to seeing computer-generated images now that it has a big impact on how we see all images. I think this describes the look my figures have. I see them almost as like a thin layer of something and I don’t know what is behind them.”
