More information about this artwork

Nicolas Party is a Swiss-born artist known for his colorful and playful approach to painting. He uses a variety of mediums, including oil, pastel, and charcoal, to create bright, whimsical imagery. His work is often characterized by its bold use of color and its striking contrasts between light and dark. He frequently uses a limited palette of colors, which creates a sense of harmony and balance in his pieces. Party's work often features simple, geometric shapes, which are often repeated and layered in his compositions. He also explores the idea of color as an abstraction. His paintings are often seen as a celebration of color, light, and form, and an exploration of the potential of painting as a medium. Nicolas Party is a Lausanne-born figurative painter (b. 1980) known for his captivating landscapes, portraits, and still lifes. Using soft pastels, he transforms mundane objects into abstract, biomorphic shapes to convey deeper meanings. His distinct style creates a fantastical world of characters and motifs with heightened and skewed perspectives.

In addition to paintings, Party also explores other mediums including murals, pietra dura, ceramics, installations, and sculptures. His brightly colored androgynous figures range in scale and are displayed on tromp l'oeil marble plinths to challenge conventional perspectives. Party's background in graffiti and mural-making (with commissions for the Dallas Museum of Art and the Hammer Museum in LA) informs his approach to installations, where he incorporates color and architecture to create immersive experiences for viewers.
