Anne faith nicholls is a truly unique addition to the contemporary art scene—she provides a refreshing look at the soul of the modern woman and artist. Born with a backwards heart, Nicholls has an inner strength that is inspirational and captivating. Her sense of adventure and exploration began in Victoria, British Columbia. Restless to travel to new places, she made her journey south to San Francisco, graduating from the Academy of Art University, and then on to Southern California where she resides today. She has traveled the world with a focus on studying the masters. This commitment to traditional painting has contributed to the development of her own unique style of utilizing both oil and acrylic to achieve a signature layered look and a saturated, antiqued, color pallet. Nicholls’ early career success began in the California Pop Surrealist and “Low Brow” movements, appearing regularly in Juxtapoz Magazine, and as a Van’s Artist Brand Ambassador. However, she hesitates to confine herself to recent contemporary movements, citing inspiration from Surrealist and traditional painting as more key to her work. Nicholls’ style is best described as Neo-Surrealism, drawing inspiration from early American Folk Art, French and Socialist Surrealism, and Society Portraiture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Her favorite artists are René Magritte, Frida Kahlo, Neo Rauch, Ingres, Alex Katz, Chuck Close, Mathew Barney and Marcel Duchamp. She came up in the Los Angeles art scene exhibiting alongside some of her mentors. Nicholls cites the Surrealist Manifesto as an inspiration, emphasizing the subconscious or the dream state in the core of her imagery. Her original paintings have been featured in private collections, galleries and museums throughout the world and her illustration work has been featured in many art-related publications.
