Nicholas Chalmers - Artist, Graphic Designer, Film Maker, Innovator, Pro Surfer

I LOVE Nicholas Chalmers Work, I guess you might define [him in a way] as a "sub culture artist"
 He teams intricate and detailed ink-work on wood along with pained canvases and also makes short films, he's known for his artistic collaborations both here and internationally.
Chalmers work presents humorous, quirky, often in a way that engages, entertains and provokes viewers.  

Working as a Graphic Designer by day, Chalmers continues to challenge with his views and body of work in everyday "conventional gallery space" which is exactly what we are not - and why its an honour to exhibit him!

If you get a chance its well worth watching Chalmers surf, he has a certain "je ne sais quoi" you can see him in Johnny Abegg's film  “___” its like a dance on a long board, amazing! 

One last note - When Aaron and I saw this pic of Abegg, Heywood and Chalmers from ArtPark, I was determined to pitch all 3 - and I did and here we are!
