Nick Flatt is a texas born artist who lives in Berlin just now.
Nick Flatt is a realist painter and sculptor. Nick Flatt is notable for his large-format portraits in addition to large scale mixed media installations. He like working with models that work in the commercial industry. He find that he is able to mimic real advertisements more easily. Nick Flatt like the idea of using industry models, poses, and professional lighting rigs to mock the idea of “selling.” Sort of holding a mirror up to the absurdity of advertising and the false needs it creates.’
n Flatt’s words, “This show is about the things we want, and how the need to obtain these vices influence our everyday lives.” Rather than examining the influences conditioning us to lust after sex, money, and power this exhibit considers “the carrot,” “the glossy images of desire that makes us feel like we are not quite living up to our potential,” “that make our lives feel mediocre.” These portraits, glossy and glamorized yet also uniquely raw and assertive. Force us to confront the cheap objectification and manipulation we encounter from countless sources in our daily lives. Flatt explains: “By addressing the strings that pull us to these empty wants, it makes cutting them that much easier.”
The work Nick Flatt – Rebel was specially made for Ministry of Walls Street Art Gallery. And now her in our shop.
