Leave me a comment, Say something nice, then retract it. What is that?

Withdraw before you get met with rejection?
A maneuver to make me wonder if I've done something to offend you?
Bating me by getting my attention so I notice you quickly hide behind a tree?


N8grafica's Profile Picture
Nathaniel Campbell
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Born to BC's west coast, I began an interest in art at the age of six.
Taking private lessons at the age of 9, I studied charcoal.
After majoring in art through high school in an advanced placement program, I studied design and illustration at UFV where I received my diploma. The emphasis in that program was visual communication, which plays a key roll in my art today.
Upon graduating I worked with a graphics company that did murals. I learned a lot about planning large scale paintings from Dean Lauze, who was a big contributor in my development as an artist.
In 2005 Joseph, my business partner and brother, and I, started a clothing line called Brethren Empirical which featured graphic art and custom touches. After running Brethren clothing and selling limited run T shirts to boutiques for a few years, I returned my focus to fine art.
While the main medium is oil, the occasional wood piece, gives me a chance to employ the chainsaw. Regardless of medium, nature and natural forms are emphasized in my work, often with strong narratives using a symbolic language. I'm really interested in the power of myths and totems so animals are used for this purpose. Dreams also use a similar type symbolic language to tell us things. Since my dreams have been quite lucid at times, a dream journal has become one resource in producing ideas and images.
My ultimate goal, is to create beautiful work with mystique, to use skill to deliver a message to the heart, and all the while projecting from a place of masculinity.
