Multitalented and many faceted artist Tucker Nichols is one of the most engaging voices in contemporary art today. In the words of art critic Roberta Smith, “he draws, paints, sculpts, has collaborated on two children’s books and also writes quite well.” A lifelong summer resident of North Haven island, Nichols will discuss his time in Maine in relation to other artists who have painted along the Maine coast.
Nichols’s work has been featured at the Drawing Center in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Denver Art Museum, Den Frie Museum in Copenhagen, and the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. He has also produced work for Facebook and Yahoo among others. His drawings have been published in McSweeney’s, The Thing Quarterly, Nieves Books and the Op-Ed pages of The New York Times. He is co-author of the books, Crabtree (with Jon Nichols) and This Bridge Will Not Be Gray (with Dave Eggers).
Tucker Nichols was born in Boston and is now based in Northern California. He received his BA in art history from Brown and MA in Chinese paintings from Yale. He is represented by ZieherSmith in New York and Gallery 16 in San Francisco. For more information on Nichols, visit www.tuckernichols.com.
