Nick Sargent


Nick Sargent turned to fine art after a twenty-year career in theatre design. In 1999, he returned to college to study an MA in Fine Art at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee. It was his background and experience in different design disciplines which culminated in current his artistic style. Working mostly on woven and embroidered canvases, Sargent creates uneven but controlled surfaces, applying a variation of oil and mixed media. Since the beginning of his fruitful artistic career, he has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the UK.
