Nick Jackson

With the print rooms upstairs at the Bluecoat available to everyone, we often get artists calling in to Nook & Cranny for inspiration. A short while ago, we met Nick who was just starting out at screen printing. He seemed a little unsure as to whether he would make anything, so I set him a challenge. He had just a few months to create a print that we could sell in the shop - often, having a goal gives you that drive to actually make the art work.
Considering Nick is still learning the art of screen printing, he has provided us with 2 fantastic prints!

The top print is so on trend with the ombre fade of pink to red - we can see this sweet print being very popular for valentines day.
The 'Stay Gold' print is full of surprises. On closer inspection, there's a great gold shimmer to the bright yellow print with the O making way for a medal - perfect for the up and coming Olympics!

For a first timer, Nick is doing fairly well. We can't wait to see his future work and know that he will go very far as an artist.
