About the Artist

Nick Z is a Visual Artist, Illustrator, Designer based in Boston, Massachusetts

His constantly evolving and morphing artwork ranges from small framed drawings and site specific 3D installations to large scale commissioned murals all the while translating what he does by hand to digital graphics able to be placed on products such as snowboards, apparel, and packaging.

When making work for display, Z draws influences from his youthful adventurous side, the colors in nature all around him, psychology, and semiotics. These influences along with his curiousity of the human condition mixed with lifelong ingredients including skateboarding, graffiti, DIY culture, are his driving force to create.

Nick Z has exhibited extensively on the East Coast and globally from Hong Kong to Montreal. Most notably, he was part of a two-person exhibition at Gladstone Gallery in New York, as well as being featured as one of the “40 Artists You Should Know” in the nationally juried publication; New American Painters. Z’s work has been acquired by prestigious collections, including Takashi Murakami’s, and his commercial design clients have included Pepsi, Neiman Marcus, Karmaloop, Cisco Brewers, LiveNation, Vibram Shoes, Saji Magazine, and Skelanimals.
