Montreal, Milan and Hong Kong are the cities where Nicolas Party has had solo exhibitions this year alone. The Swiss painter prefers pastels, which he uses to create colourful yet eerie landscapes and portraits. Ever since visitors to an art fair in Brussels in 2017 crowded as if in front of the Mona Lisa in the Louvre to catch a glimpse of Party's paintings, he is no longer considered an insider tip. Since 2019, the Hauser & Wirth gallery has represented him as one of the youngest artists (*1980) in its ranks.
