“My art is the embodiment of a child looking through a psychedelic kaleidoscope lens.”
Nicole Dimt is a 23-year-old painter from Toronto, Canada. She holds a BFA in Visual Arts from York University, with a specialization in acrylic painting.
In her art, Nicole reflects on her childhood, projecting feelings of joy, innocence, and child-like wonder. Nicole’s art relies heavily on the use of highly saturated and vibrant colour, as well as line, and shape.
Nicole’s artwork with themes of architecture, nature and technology, depicts Futurist, dystopian, and psychedelic wonderlands full of overwhelming detail, pattern, and fascination. Nicole describes her art as “organized chaos.”
Nicole’s art also works hand-in-hand with the digital world, collaborating with heavy photo manipulation, colour inversion and total distortion, adding an unnatural or synthetic quality to her paintings. This added quality to her works speaks upon the narrative of the grasp that the digital world has had on us, and how it has warped our perception of reality.
The digital world consumes Nicole in her everyday life, not only being a young adult with social media, but also as an individual who works full time as a digital concept artist, and has impacted her visions of how art is now capable of being created, and how the limitations of art have been completely pushed in new, and exciting directions.
