Based in Melbourne, Australia Nicole Tattersall has been creating works since 2006 and is most well known known for her stencil art, illustration and installation works. Which 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. 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 wanted to start to customise her own surfboards.
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 and to aid in their campaigns, with her illustrations and through being an advocate by talking about the issues.
Using her Events Management skills Nicole has curated and organised a selection of group exhibitions and art events; Random Collective, Art On Your Sleeve, Street Art For Ashes, the Melbourne Curvy 6 and 7 book launches at Magnation, and Split Personalities, a duo show she did with fellow artist Megan Dell. In addition to exhibiting Part Time, Nicole works Full Time as a Fundraising Officer for a Melbourne based charity using both her Events Management and Graphic Design Skills.
Works by Nicole currently reside in private collections throughout Australia as well as Internationally.
