Nick Boerma — Collection of Works
Posted on July 15, 2012
Nick Boerma is an unconventional ‘street artist’, creating pop-culture inspired works across screenprints, stencils and installation.
Nick Boerma is a Sydney based screenprint and stencil artist born in 1985. Print is his default medium and the way he chooses to experiment with and flesh out ideas.
Aesthetically, Nick likes his work to have a pop factor; something which makes it jump out at the viewer. He uses this aesthetic to both engage, and disarm the audience. His work references, impersonates, subverts and celebrates pop culture. This aesthetic draws in the viewer, while also obscuring the subtle questions he asks of his audience.
While not a “street artist” in the conventional sense, Boerma likes to challenge what his audience expects of this aesthetic. This often takes his work into public space in the form of installation.
With a bold use of colour, media and scale, he hopes to create art which is accessible, yet, ambiguous.
