Nicholas paints oddly rousing, marvellous oddities; intricate, multi-layered amalgams of painterly re-working, transcription, stylistic fracture and collage. The works pose unconventional situations and embrace the pleasures and potential of multiple readings, allowing the viewer to become absorbed in their alchemical playfulness and pretence at telling tales.

Nicholas studied painting at Wimbledon College of Art, London. He won the Sir Idris Pearce Fine Art Prize 2006 and was shortlisted for the Celeste Painting Prize 2007. He has exhibited internationally and recently had work published in the book; Place, Practice and Ten Dialogues. He is currently undertaking his MFA at Slade School of Art, London.
