His work “the pathway of self-revived” been published in P’AN KU Literary and art magazine. He also Participated in many group exhibitions at studio 18 and been to Art Beat Miami during art Basel week, for two consecutive years.
Nickson’s paintings are a manifestation of expressive geometric forms, symbols and colors highly influenced by ancient African cultures. He feels a special connection to the artworks from these specific eras and places because they help him connect with his origins; their influences directly shaped his own artistic expressions. He has also been exposed to architecture theory and design which challenged the way he analyzes his abstract paintings.
His works are generally started digitally. Escorted by his inspiration, he creates forms, he adds symbols to express his reasoning and set colors based on his immediate emotions to have a complex dialogue within the work. After he fully resolved the concept on his computer, he choose the scale and print the first layer tone on canvas so he can meticulously proceed with a distinctive touch of oil paint to vitalize the painting.
The contemporary artist finds inspiration in many places of his environment and likes to challenge himself. With his distinguished artistic expression and arduous work process, his abstract paintings evoke a prestigious sense of value, variation, and balance. His oeuvres are the mirroring of his own essence.
