ABOUT NICK ELPHICK


 

North Wales-based artist Nick Elphick is somewhat of a passionate visionary who has spent the best part of the past fourteen years working to better understand form and the human mind.

Back in 2002, Nick graduated from Loughborough University with a BA Hons in Fine Art Sculpture and since then, he has strived to fully understand the techniques and meaning of sculpture. “I do not just replicate a form but search for a deeper meaning; I want the eye to travel over a piece to stimulate and breathe creativity into the viewer,” comments Nick.

His attention to detail and knowledge of the figurative has gained Nick a reputation as a perfectionist, a purist, and, of course, a man of notable talent. In the past few years, he has been gaining headlines and global recognition for his beautifully crafted bronzes, which is probably why household names such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, Damien Hirst and most recently Ryan Gander, have called upon Nick to aid them with their own work.

From the techniques and materials used to the featured characters and understanding of the aesthetics itself, Nick boldly takes on the traditionalist and basically sticks two figures up. His work is bold, playful, beautifully crafted but with an edge that literally rips through the subconscious of the observer, leaving an irrevocable impression on the psyche.
