Artist Statement and Biography:
Nicole Bruckman is an artist, curator, mother, animal lover, and animal advocate from Cleveland, Ohio. Embracing her passion for art at a very young age, Nicole went on to receive her BFA in illustration from the Columbus College of Art And Design in Columbus, Ohio.
After graduation Nicole began work as a freelance illustrator and designer. Deciding to further pursue her love for painting, Nicole moved to Los Angeles, and began showing her art as well as curating shows at various prominent Los Angeles galleries.
Compelled by her life’s passions, Nicole’s paintings are inspired by the bond that exists between humans and animals. She creates enchanting and whimsical narratives in which human and animal characters coexist in fantastic and engaging settings. Wild exotic creatures and domesticated animals alike are the guides on a sublimely surreal journey through an endless nocturne. They live in a seemingly utopian realm, in which humans are conscious of the bond between our world and the kingdom of Animalia. These works are created in the hopes that this world may one day exist, and we may recognize and respect the value in all living beings. All of the pieces are acrylic on wood panel.
