Interests and Personality

BiographyNikki Cheal is a contemporary figurative artist who visually explores the relationships of the everyday. Using digital technology to construct environments and universal narrative, Nikki's work creates a strong sense of everyday life. Nikki finds her initial inspiration for her work from behind the eye of the lens with photography forming the foundation of her art. Using photographs purely as an outline for form and composition, Nikki then draws on colour, texture and pattern to create a heightened sense of narrative and sentiment for each piece. "I'm always looking for perfect photos and great textures that I can use. In my piece called Domestic Goddess, set in a kitchen, I wanted to use textures that you'd find in a domestic setting, so the doors in the kitchen are created from scanning a potato; I also used a scouring pad for another texture. Inspiration and textures can come from the strangest sources".
InterestsArt, visiting galleries, dancing like a chimp on acid, cheese, learning new words.
