Nathan Downing

Nathan Downing (Arizona, United States, 1981, self-educated). In 2010, when his life was going through many changes, an urge deep within led him to pick up a pencil. The sense of familiarity was something not felt since his childhood. With a personality that leans towards that of a perfectionist, this is expressed in his work with minimalistic - realism of the desired subject. His art is unique in many aspects and follows a logical approach.

With an eye for detail and technical skills, he paints a variety of subjects. What starts as a simple image develops into a sophisticated composition in which each detail has a meaning. The choice of background color, the title, and subject matter are tied together to evoke various emotions. Observing our own thoughts, creativity is born, and each painting represents humanity and the world we live in. There are always hidden messages in his paintings. It is up to the viewer to find them. “I believe art is a visual language of humanity and a means of expression that should be shared. Visual communication through art brings about a healthy society”.

Inner Reflection

When in front of a body of water, one tends to stand and reflect.  At times bringing a sense of calm or peace. Here the water represents an endless flow that is life while the slightly worn petal signifies the struggles of life.  Nothing is perfect.
