Nicole Hymowitz to be the first Featured Artist at August Muse

August Muse has begun to establish the retail store to include an art gallery. Beginning in January 2023 the store will have rotating featured artists, many who will present only a one month art show.

The first featured artist is Nicole Hymowitz, A Display of Art. She joined the August Muse retail store over the Holidays. Her art style encompasses beauty, creativity, expression and fun. Her psychedelic pop art uses bright colors, lines that captures the eye, and imagination. Final pieces are printed on metal and metallic paper as well as prints. Her works will be on display January 5 - January 31, 2023. Pieces can be purchased in store during Janaury.

Nicole is also a teacher of art and art history. Watch for up coming art classes at August Muse this year.

About Nicole:

I am a life long artist. I was born in Germany and spent the first 6 years of my life there. In 1972, my family and I migrated

to America. We settled in my fathers' hometown of Winston-Salem, NC. Starting at the age of 10, I went back to Germany for visits with my Grandfather in the summer, where he gave me my first art lessons. He was a hobby painter and we painted together. At 13, I had the privilege of visiting Paris where I perused the halls of the Louvre and Pompidou. I ended up finishing high school at NC School of the Arts and after wandering from the NCSU Design School to ECSU Art School I finally settled in NYC and received a BFA from Parsons School of Design. I have been pursuing a life in art ever since.

Nicole is also available for Psychedelic Art Commissions and Portrait Photography.

About Nicole's Art

I use a computer and my camera to create my art. For my Colorful Creations I start with a photograph. Most of the images I have taken myself but sometimes I create a collage from photographs on the internet. For commissioned work, I use photos provided by my clients. The final pieces can be printed on Metal or on Metallic paper. Smaller Prints are on Glossy. I also use a computer to create my Woobly World Art and Designs. I print all my own work up to 8x10.

I don't have enough space to tell you about everything that inspires me. I suppose, like most, it depends on the day. I do know that I am very connected to organic shapes and lines. I love bright colors although you would be hard pressed to find much in my wardrobe. And, you might find a pattern or two that I like in some of my artwork.

My Woobly World is a culmination of these little creatures? characters? I have been drawing off and on for the last 30 years. I can't tell you what inspired them, it just seems that one day, there they were. Go figure.

More about Nicole's Inspiration and Goals:

Artistically I am inspired by Peter Max, Escher, Warhol, Dali, Van Gogh, Lichtenstein, and countless others.

I have rarely come across an artist that didn't have some inspiration for me, even if it was just their dogged determination and bravery for putting it all out there.

What are the art styles that inspire me?

The Psychedelic 60s, (obviously) Pop Art, Fantasy Art, and Surrealism. I am also partial to expressionism and I am in love with the old masters. Not because my work is like theirs but because they were the artists that lay the foundation for art today. They taught us how to see.

I have one goal and that is to share my art with the world. How that takes shape is still and probably will always be a work in progress. But I know it will always be moving forward.
