Nick McGavern is a multi-disciplined visual artist practicing in painting, sculpture, 2d/3d animation and interactive digital mediums. Nick has recently joined the music festival scene

to display his digital visuals which are a culmination of his digital sculpture and 2d/3d animation practices. Nick also has produced many music videos for Australian and internationally recognised musicians, such as Loose Grip, Tidy Kid, The Red Paintings, Mixmup, Brainbeau, Sonicacid, Kelby/Kennedy, and Puzahki, among others. Nick created animations for augmented reality apps and has also gone on to produce mobile apps of his own including one in collaboration with internationally recognised Australian street artist Anthony Lister titled “Street Painter” released in 2017. Nick approaches his art as a journey not only of self-discovery but as an evolution as in all life. Nick’s artistic journey began around the age of four when he was introduced to a pencil and paper. Most of his days as a young boy were spent drawing pictures of all things that fascinated him, at that time it was mainly trucks. At the age of seven he was introduced to oil paint where he would reinterpret old paintings and paint still life. He went on to study fine art in his twenties where his more conceptual approaches were encouraged alongside life drawing and painting practices. Nick then studied 2d and 3d animation before moving into interactive mediums to produce mobile games and interactive experimental works.
