Acrylic on board
We love the work of Nigel Cook, his use of paint is free, fluid and confident. His application method is very unique to his work and he piles paint on top of paint to achieve a textured finish. All Nigel's work comes ready to hand in a black high gloss lacquered deep frame.
Born in Mirfield, West Yorkshire, Nigel Cooke joined the Merchant Navy after leaving school and subsequently has held a number of jobs on the road to becoming a full-time artist.
Nigel Cooke sold his first painting at the age of 14 and joined Butlins as their resident caricaturist and entertainer in 1992. He later went on to open caricature concessions on Blackpools Central Pier and Pleasure Beach, in the Trafford Centre Mall in Manchester, and at Alton Towers.
