Nicky Carvell

‘My work, which I term as ‘Naff Grafix’ is an emphatic embrace of dynamic formalism encasing the grit of British suburbia. Working mostly in digital print with Photoshop as my conduit and aluminium as it’s support, my works are the proposition of an uplifting otherworld. Resulting in abstract digital paintings, they are lyrical, confrontational and excitable. Having come from a suburban teen goth background, I am deeply affected by underground movements and the way in which these can visually rile up society. I am fascinated with the edge where drab reality can be swallowed up by optimistic visual imposition.’
