Nick Harvey, a Bristol-based street artist, explores the shared environment of humans and nocturnal animals living in the city. His work evokes a primal experience in an urban world, wild, city-dwelling creatures clash with an unpredictable human element. He draws on the unexpected parallel fate of urban animals and street artists: bound to be shy, secretive yet daring.
Growing up in London, Nick pursued his interest in street art whilst honing his technical skills studying Fine Art at university. Drawn to Bristol by its creative atmosphere, Nick’s work fast became a recognisable feature of areas such as Stokes Croft, St. Werburgh’s and the Bearpit. Attempting to disrupt the grey uniform of our unanimated world, Nick offers something out of the ordinary, drawing our attention away from our everyday, mundane surroundings.
