About this Artist

Nik Ridley

Artist Statement:

I am a mixed-media artist. Music, Word, and Design are the foundations that I lay my work upon, and I incorporate them in all that I do. My perspective is that all forms of art are, in their bare essence, shades of the same Source. I believe that the “shades” are mirrors, and an outlet for humanity to experience itself, learn, and grow.

My approach to the craft is pretty simple: BE authentic. Only when art comes from within, does it liberate the artist, and the audience experiencing it. Authenticity is the “thing” that moves us. The glue that binds. The Truth that we all truly seek. Whether a specific font or the right snare, the art must BE authentic.
