NICHOLAS DI GENOVA is an artist that I spotted in June during Scope Basel. Few months later, it’s definitively time to feature his incredible drawings on WFW.

NICHOLAS DI GENOVA is a Canadian artist who works mainly with ink and animation paints to create a vast and intense encyclopedic range of constructed interconnected species, families and rival clans that find themselves projecting their habits, relations and environments to their viewers.

“When I was a kid growing up I was obsessed with animals and monsters… I’d draw them everyday, and when I grew up I either wanted to be a zoologist or a monster hunter… When I got a bit older I realized that being a zoologist was less exciting than I had imagined, and that ‘monster hunter’ isn’t even a real job, so I just kept drawing. I pretty much do the exact same thing at 29 years old that I did when I was 9 years old.”

This is Art, with a capital “A”: very good, important and innovative!
