The artist Nicolas Party

  • Known for his figurative depictions of biomorphic objects.
  • Influenced by contemporary art and the Renaissance.
  • Uses colour schemes with an uncanny and fantastical character.

Nicolas Party, born 1980 in Lausanne, Switzerland, is a contemporary artist who, in addition to paintings, has also devoted himself to murals as well as installations and sculptures. Party's paintings are characterised by their slightly alienated figurative depictions in garish, opaque pastel colours as well as a partly monochrome colour scheme. His recurring motifs include both natural and abstracted (double) portraits, still lifes and landscapes.

The colouring and graphic distortion often give his works an uncanny and at the same time fantastical character. Just like his paintings, his sculptures also show anthropomorphic forms of depiction: They often consist of oversized busts and other biomorphic objects. His works have already been shown in renowned museums such as the Dallas Museum of Art and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.

His style is inspired by various Swiss artists of the 19th century such as Félix Vallotton, Ferdinand Hodler and Hans Emmenegger. In addition, Party draws on various artistic styles and epochs. Thus, impulses from contemporary art as well as from figurative painting of the Renaissance can be found in his works.

The composition of his paintings is reminiscent of artists such as Rosalba Carriera and Rachel Ruysch as well as more modern expressionist artists such as Milton Avery. Party studied at Lausanne School of Art in Switzerland and graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from Glasgow School of Art in Scotland. He currently lives in New York City and Brussels.

Der Künstler Nicolas Party

  • Bekannt für seine figurativen Darstellungen biomorpher Objekte.
  • Zeigt sowohl Einflüsse zeitgenössischer Kunst als auch der Renaissance.
  • Seine Farbgebung hat einen unheimlichen und zugleich fantastischen Charakter.

Nicolas Party, geb. 1980 in Lausanne, Schweiz, ist ein zeitgenössischer Künstler, der sich neben Gemälden auch der Dekoration und Bemalung von Wänden und Wandpfeilern sowie Installationen und Skulpturen gewidmet hat. Partys Gemälde zeichnen sich durch ihre leicht verfremdeten figurativen Darstellungen in grellen, deckenden Pastellfarben sowie eine teils monochrome Farbgebung aus.

Zu seinen wiederkehrenden Motiven gehören sowohl natürliche als auch abstrahierte (Doppel-)Portraits, Stillleben und Landschaften. Durch das Kolorit und die graphische Verzerrung erhalten seine Werke oft einen unheimlichen und zugleich fantastischen Charakter. Neben den Gemälden knüpfen auch seine Skulpturen an die anthropomorphen Darstellungsformen an und zeigen häufig überdimensionierte Büsten sowie andere biomorphe Objekte.

Seine Werke waren bereits in namhaften Museen wie dem Dallas Museum of Art und dem Hammer Museum in Los Angeles zu sehen. Sein Stil orientiert sich an verschiedenen Schweizer Künstlern des 19. Jahrhunderts wie Félix Vallotton, Ferdinand Hodler und Hans Emmenegger. Darüber hinaus greift Party auf verschiedene Kunststile und Epochen zurück. So sind in seinen Werken sowohl Impulse der zeitgenössischen Kunst als auch der figurativen Malerei der Renaissance finden.

Die gestalterische Zusammensetzung seiner Gemälde erinnert an Künstler wie etwa Rosalba Carriera und Rachel Ruysch sowie an modernere expressionistisch geprägte Künstler wie Milton Avery. Party studierte an der Lausanne School of Art in der Schweiz und erwarb seinen Master of Fine Arts an der Glasgow School of Art in Schottland. Inzwischen lebt er in New York City und Brüssel.
