Nick Hope

Artist Nick Hope has a background in creative lighting design and digital visual animation. He has adapted techniques developed in these contexts to produce striking photographic stills, each reproducing the impact of visual movement in a single dramatic, boldly colourful frame.

Nick’s distinctive style infuses deceptively simple digital forms with vibrant colour and tone. His images play with the boundaries between representation and abstraction, symmetry and asymmetry, repetition and variation. Many offer the viewer a visual puzzle, hovering between two and three dimensions in a twist on the traditional trompe l’oeil.

Nick is the creator of The Nearly Really Rude Show which had its debut performance at the MTV EMAs. He has designed and produced events for Arena Magazine, Links of London, The Rolling Stones, Attitude Magazine, Cavo Paradiso and Fabric nightclub. As a VJ he has performed alongside a number of the industry’s most successful underground house DJs, including Marco Carola, Will Saul, Laura Jones, Mr C, Redshape, Theo Parrish and DJ T. He also performed a bespoke visual interpretation for Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry at The Tabernacle, using the collages of renowned artist Peter Harris.

Nick recently moved to Bristol from London.
