Nico Madill | BIO < back to artists


Dunedin artist Nico Madill didn’t want to go to art school. Instead he opted to coach himself through various forms of creative expression... so far the results have spoken for themselves with virtually all of Nico's incredibly detailed work selling as soon as it hits the gallery.

Nico is a big advocate for leaving some elements in his work up to chance saying, “I work primarily in collage using easy to find materials like discarded cardboard, bits of thrown out board, frames from second hand shops and colouring in pencils”.

His dark, and beautiful palette of exquisitely formed collages are made up of excrutiatingly detailed individual drawings and paintings which take sometimes weeks to prepare.
