About the artist
Nicholas Cueva, born 1983 in Dana Point, California, is an artist currently living in Brooklyn. His casual but specific approach to painting is conceptually bound into the physicality of space in image.
Receiving his MFA in Painting and Drawing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he moved to New York in 2011, where his constant approach to the current languages of construction and loss have gone on to influence and dialogue with the Bushwick scene.
Born with a rare and lethal heart condition, and undergoing frequent life saving heart surgeries, all starting at 6 months, he has dealt with mortality his whole life. His early philosophical approach was initially sated within a religious and academic context, but after some consessions and re-evaluating, he has fallen onto using art to wordlessly unpack his and others frail and damaged psychologies.
