Nicholas Coleman

Nicholas Coleman was born in Provo, Utah, the son of artist Michael Coleman. Brought up in an artistic environment, Coleman has been painting and drawing for as long as he can remember. He has traveled extensively, painting studies and taking photographs for later works. His travels have taken him across North America, through Africa, and Europe. Coleman lived and worked in Brazil for two years. Coleman finds inspiration through his travels, and the hunting and fishing he does along the way, as well as in history, art museums and other artists. These include his father Michael Coleman, Bruno Liljefors, Wilhelm Kuhnert, Carl Rungius,Thomas Moran, Albert Bierstadt, and Frank Tenney Johnson. (The list could go on and on.)Coleman uses a traditional academic approach in his painting, using gouache and oil. However, he doesn’t like to label his style as “realism,” as there is a certain amount of spontaneity and a slight impressionistic feel to his paintings. Coleman endeavors to create a connection between his paintings and the observer by invoking a mood that the viewer can walk into.
He plans to continue working hard at what he loves; his father told him, “you are only as good as your last painting,” so Coleman continually strives to improve his abilities. Never one to miss an opportunity, he also wants to improve his etching and sculpting skills.
