About the Artist
Nick Low is a New York native and Sydney based painter, illustrator, and teaching artist. He attended the Fiorello Laguardia High School of Music and Art before receiving his Bachelors in Fine Arts from NYU. Nick paints primarily in watercolours but has worked with an array of media and with a diverse group of collaborators. He is a sponsored artist with ABSOLUT and his murals can be found in some of Harlem’s most famous establishments, such as Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster. Nick has always been inspired to capture people in their natural habitat and to paint faces that are often underrepresented in the art world.
Special thanks to Vision Lab in Alexandria, Sydney for their expert scanning of the art work and subsidising the costs to ensure LRG will receive the best donation possible.
