Nickolas Deakin-Gentry is an Artist with a deep and passionate appreciation for beauty in the natural world and within the human spirit. This enthusiastic and sensitive joy is reflected strongly in his artwork. His work is executed in a vibrant, impressionistic style, which - while still retaining its representational roots, incorporates abstract and photographic elements, resulting in a uniquely contemporary yet traditional fusion.
He is a sensitive individual that understands the human spirit- he never wants to just paint a portrait he wants to capture a unique soul that will reflect the inner sitter.
When commissioned to create a Mural Gentry needs to research and explore the subject matter so that the viewer understand the story being told- ultimately that is what an artist is doing-Story telling.
In 2021 Nickolas celebrates 31 years as a professional Artist/ illustrator -“I create everything from Chalkboards for a Wedding, special event or cafés to portraits to fine art and Murals".
Nickolas Von Gentry has a loyal following in Australia, England, Germany, Thailand and Canada. His home gallery is located in Greenslopes, Queensland Australia.
With an insatiable passion to learn new techniques, styles and mediums- this multi-talented fine Artist has a hunger to grow and evolve his eclectic styles and study of his surroundings.
