Introducing: Nick Gentry

Fine artist Nick Gentry, a truly exciting new prospect in the art world, has joined the ranks of artrepublic’s growing collection of young contemporary artist’s, and how proud we are to have him.

British artist Nick Gentry, a graduate of Central St Martins, is in essence a portrait painter. But that is where all ties to conventional portraiture end as Gentry’s art is about so much more than just the identity of a person’s face.

Through the use of paint applied to ‘obsolete media formats’ Gentry examines notions of identity and wider notions such as waste culture and life cycles, as well as making a powerful commentary on the constant changing state of technology.

As part of a generation that grew up surrounded by floppy disks, VHS tapes, Polaroid’s and cassettes, he is inspired by the sociological impact of a new internet culture.

Using old disks as a canvas, these artefacts are combined to create photo-fits and identities that may draw connections to the personal information that is then forever locked down underneath the paint.

This has led to an exploration of the ways in which humankind is integrating with technology. As it reaches a tipping point, this new movement is becoming increasingly apparent as a cultural and social transition of our time and poses an important question: will humans be forever compatible with our own technology?

Nick Gentry has exhibited in the UK, USA and Europe amidst a growing reputation. 2011 has already begun very well for Nick with his artwork ‘The Entity D2’ (below) selling at Bonhams in London this January for just under £6500.00 (including all taxes and charges)
