Swedish painter Nick Alm started out as an illustrator in 1999,
but changed course when he discovered the joy of painting.
In 2007 he got accepted to the Florence Academy of Art to study
the figure from life in the classical manner.
Here he also became a teaching assistant. After graduation Nick received
a scholarship to join The Hudson River Fellowship to paint landscapes.
During the stay he also explored the great art museums in New York City.
A big part of 2011 was spent together with Odd Nerdrum
in Norway and France before moving back to Sweden.
"The human figure has always been at the center of my work which
I try to capture with a great sense of light, atmosphere and texture.
I prefer to work directly from life instead of using a camera.
A photograph is just an interpretation of life that lacks the subtle colour
and value shifts and the interesting changes in nature. Instead
of copying the object in front of me, I simplify, rearrange and add my own vision.
My main source of inspiration comes from the contemporary world around me."
