About the Artist
JanaNicole’s works are often memories in mixed media, upcycling nostaligic materials and iconic images to fuse them with architectural salvage and abstract backdrops, often evoking a myriad of emotions from the spiritual to the comical, the classically familiar to the downright bizarre.
Now resident in the UK, she exhibits her works regularly in and around London and the South East as well as in her native Palm Springs.
Past exhibitions include Roy’s People Art Fair, Oxo Tower, London, Saatchi’s The Other Art Fair, DTLA, California, Claridge Fine Art, UK. Tutton and Young’s, The Brighton Art Fair, Corn Exchange, The Other Art Fair’s 10th Anniversary, Truman Brewery. Gavin Turk and Deborah Curtis’ House of Fairy Tales, JanaNicole’s from A to Z Solo show, Corridor Gallery, Brighton and The Other Art Fair in Victoria House, London. Crush Gallery, The Hop Gallery Solo Show, UK.
Born in the USA, but resident in the south of England for nearly 20 years, Jana Nicole is very much an established artist within the British Art scene, regularly exhibiting at many of the prestigious shows and galleries throughout the UK.
Her works are a beautiful melding of style, subject and substance. Predominantly mixed media and often using her now trademark collage techniques, she has an extraordinary ability to fuse the nostalgic with the iconic creating that uncanny line between the ‘classically familiar and the downright bizarre.’
No more so than her latest and most popular collection to date, Animal Attraction, a beautiful and captivating series that perceptively delves into the psyche of animals, liberating their fascinating characters with familiar and sensual human counterparts.
