NICK LAMIA is an award-winning artist whose work includes drawing, painting, printmaking, installation and sculpture. Despite its non-objective appearance, all of his artwork is based on real, lived experience–often involving outdoor adventures in the mountains and on the ocean. His artworks are metaphoric representations of the overlap of the natural world with the constructed world of man. He is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship as well as residencies at Wave Hill, The MacDowell Colony, the Robert Blackburn Print Workshop, and the Triangle Artists Association. 500 of his small-scale drawings were included in the inaugural Bronx Museum Biennial in 2011. Recent solo exhibitions include “Cloud, Mountain, Valley, Sea” at Jason McCoy Gallery in New York and “Greenhouse,” for which he created a group of site-specific wall works for the Richard Meier building at Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn. He lives and works in New York City with his wife, two sons and their dog Trixie.
