Nick Pont
Australian, 1987

Nick Pont’s work is anything but naive. An otherworldly feeling is created through his poetic tonal drawings and raw mysterious paintings. By using a process that is intuitive and experimental Pont focuses on a unique interpretation of culture, spiritualism and his surrounding environment. This interpretation involves re-imagining the past using a range of historical media and own photographs while simultaneously altering the present through his profound ability to portray a sophisticated narrative that explores myth, idealism and the sublime.
