Although a visual artist since childhood, Chicago musician Nicholas Barron discovered the medium of oil pastel in his fourth decade. His work, infused with energy and intention, features layers of fragmented shapes and colors of half dissolved memories, thoughts and emotions. Nicholas believes the creative process is his connection “to something wider and deeper.” Nicholas now creates using a variety of mediums and surfaces, including wood, glass and canvas. His work hangs in private collections in the United States and Europe. Select pieces are available for exhibition and purchase. Nicholas also welcomes custom orders.
