NICK FEDAEFF

Nick FEDAEFF (1965) is an artist born in 1965. Nick began his career as a singer, composer and Russian interpreter in 1988. He worked in the world of music for several years before undertaking multimedia art in 1996, which led him, eight years later, to produce abundant visual pieces.

Nick is prolific and passionate and he spends most of his days drawing sketches either in his atelier, based in Auckland, New Zealand, or during his trips, on pieces of paper or directly on the computer, which he later uses to make his pieces. He uses oil paint as much as he uses acrylic paint and he likes to work on all kinds of formats. Nick adapts his technique to the subject of his canvas and his canvas to the size of the studio where he makes his creations. The artist is interested in studying the Great Masters and keenly goes to exhibits. He also does not hesitate to adopt techniques dating back in time, such as the superimposition of layers of painting when working with oil paints.

Nick draws inspiration from observing pieces from the artistic world but also by witnessing life and dreams, attempting to translate characteristics of the senses, conscious or unconscious, that any living being can feel into images – such as the feelings of surprise or awe, the hallucinatory aspect of a dream or even the absurdity of life-. The artist composes stories, either by reinterpreting paintings he admires, or by creating his own narratives, populated with quixotic characters, always oscillating between dream and reality

Nick Fedaeff 1988年开始了他的歌手,作曲家和俄语翻译的职业生涯。他在音乐界工作了几年,然后在1996年从事多媒体艺术工作,导致他在八年后创作了丰富的视觉作品。

Nick多产且充满激情,他大部分时间都在他位于新西兰奥克兰市的工作室或旅途中用纸或直接在计算机上绘制素描,后来他用这些素描来制作自己的作品。他使用的油漆与使用丙烯酸的油漆一样多,并且他喜欢处理各种格式。Nick将他的技术适应于画布的主题,并将画布适应于他创作的工作室的大小。该艺术家对研究大师很有兴趣,并热衷于展览。他也毫不犹豫地采用了可以追溯到过去的技术,例如在使用油画颜料时叠加绘画层。

Nick从观察艺术界的作品中汲取灵感,也通过见证生活和梦想,试图将有意识或无意识的感官特征转化为任何生物都能感觉到的图像,例如惊奇或敬畏的感觉,幻觉梦想的一面,甚至是生活的荒谬。艺术家通过重新诠释他欣赏的画作或创作自己的叙事来创作故事,这些叙事充满了古怪的人物,总是在梦想与现实之间摇摆。
