On Friday, November 8th from 6-9pm the Artist Mercantile will host a solo show of paintings by Nicky Torkzadeh. Her paintings features familiar sights such as fauna, flora and children in whimsical and abstract settings rendered in vibrant colors painted on canvas and wood. The night will include a meet and greet with Nicky Torkzadeh and live music and the work of many other local artists.
Per Nicky, "When my visions gains complexity by the addition of intense colors, thick lines, and cross-hatching swirls, I say why not? I believe that these elements come together to make my work whole." Like Hopper who Nicky takes inspiration from, she welcomes the juxtaposition of the familiar with the abstract.
Nicky was born in Tehran Iran, and emigrated to Minnesota almost 30 years ago. After collecting degrees in Studio Arts, Biology, and Architecture she worked as a graphic designer for many years and then as an artist. Nicky divides her working hours between her small home office and her more spacious studio in North East Minneapolis.
