The naivety, energy and fearless experimentation of color in his works are so unexpected and fresh, nothing short of genius.

In the wake of two severe injuries, Nick Osmond began painting two years ago in his weatherboard cottage by the Broadwater Creek, on the outskirts of Moree in north-west NSW. Describing himself as a gardener who paints, Nicks home is now overgrown with plant life and portraiture. In the studio, he regularly enjoys the company of his twelve-year-old daughter Sophie. I love to paint PEOPLE! Either as portraits or in a loose narrative style. My painting style is semi-abstract, moving sometimes to realism. Often influenced by Sidney Nolan and Adam Cullen, I’m often also inspired by Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Goya. Painting in a loose naïve style works well given the in-distinctive way I paint. I require a very firm image, visualization or photographic record to commence an artwork, yet believe most of the final image comes from the following artistic process and development.
