Based in Melbourne, Australia Nicole Tattersall has been creating artworks since 2006 and is most well known for her stencil art and illustration works. Being the current editor for Curvy, which aims to creatively inspire creative women, Nicole is an ambassador and constant inspiration for female artists throughout Australia and the World.
Nicole’s style has changed several times throughout the years from simple outlines to her now exhibited urban inspired stencil and illustrative works. The use of stenciling as a technique came about when she first started to customise her own surfboards.
Her works lend themselves to convey the context of the piece and the overall feel of the work through a selection of mixed mediums, from the innocence and creative minds of two children to the dirty look created to interpret the streets of a busy city.
Animal rights, the protection of the environment and the thought of using ones imagination are reoccurring themes in her works and are heavily influenced by her time spent at various beaches, surfing, her family trips away, Melbourne’s urban jungle and world news.
Being passionate about animal rights has lead Nicole to create works for WSPA Australia to aid in their campaigns and through being an advocate by talking about the issues. She has provided artwork to appear on promotional material to inspire people to stand up to the slaughter of dolphins in Japan at what many will know of as ‘The Cove’.
Works by Nicole currently reside in private collections Internationally and throughout Australia.
Using her Events Management skills Nicole has curated and organised a selection of group exhibitions and art events; Athena Noschua, Random Collective, Art On Your Sleeve, Street Art For Ashes, the Melbourne Curvy 6, 7 and 8 book launches, Sydney Curvy 8 book launch, and Split Personalities and Drip (duo exhibitions she did with fellow artist Megan Dell).
