With his work ranging from silhouettes to narratives and video, artist Nicholas Candela certainly does not limit himself to one medium or style. His recent body of work combines advertisement, entertainment and idiosyncratic self-portraiture with aplomb. Images that are scrolled past, both literally and figuratively, are given a new lease on life through their layered replication as drawn and painted montages.
This layering of elements makes its way into other aspects of Nicholas's work. Born in Wyandotte, Michigan in 1980, Nicholas received his BA in Art Education from Michigan State University in 2002. His varied body of work has also been showcased in several states throughout the country. He currently teaches high school art in Northern Virginia where he also resides.
