Nicholas Capaldo

Nick Capaldo is a painter whose work shifts between graphic cartoon-like images and loose painterly sky-scapes. In Capaldo’s cartoon drawings, computer character ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ appears hundreds of times as if ready to distribute to the masses. In contrast, his paintings seem to communicate an alternative notion of mass; the explored and unexplored territory of space and the universe. Nick Capaldo (born 1985) has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 2004, and has been included in numerous group exhibitions including, Melbourne Art Fair, Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne (2012) and Pearls of Arts Project Australia: The Stuart Purves Collection, National touring exhibition (2007-2009).
