Nigel Sharman is painter and printmaker who has worked in a variety of creative disciplines across the UK, Southern Africa and in New York.
While his formal artistic education is as a graduate from the University of Brighton, the artist puts his real education down to ''being dragged round the galleries of West Penwith in Cornwall as a small boy by my father and introduced to work by Alfred Wallis and Ben Nicholson."
The influence of these St Ives artists, combined with the artist’s love for European modernist painters such as Giorgio Morandi and William Scott, lead Nigel to produce a series of beautiful still-life and seascape paintings on canvas and board.
"The distinct landscape and culture and artistic heritage of the South West of England
has always been a huge influence on my work. I love mucking around with boats and generally spending time by the sea and in the harbours. It’s gratifying to see the enormous amount of time and pleasure spent doing this feed into my work."
Nigel Sharman has a Fine Art degree from Brighton University. His work has been exhibited throughout the UK and collected internationally.
