About the Artist:
Jeremy Nichols was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1982. He is a graphite and spraypaint artist hailing from Portland, OR. After studying printmaking at Ohio State University and receiving his BFA, he made the move to the West coast.
His work tends to focus on the energy, movement, balance, and harmony of the chaos around us. From urban growth and development, to the forward push to preserve the nature around us. He tries visually show a juxtaposition of these opposing forces by using elements of graphic design, mixed with fragments of organic matter, and layer them so they turn into an alien world or cluster.
He wants to present something that may or may not be familiar to the viewer. He wants the viewer to see it as a foreign environment, and take their own visual journey through the details. He wants to take the viewer somewhere unfamiliar and question the environment around them.
