Nick Devereux (UK, born 1978 in Panama City, lives and works in London) is a multidisciplinary artist, working between sculpture, painting, drawing and photography to both compose and realise his work.
His studio is a stage for imaginary environments filled with surfaces and sculptures made from a range of found materials: broken glass and ceramics, wood, metals and scraps of fabric.
Often, depictions of these dioramas are drawn or painted through careful observation, resulting in images that seem both familiar and unnatural.
