Nick Holdsworth, born 1973 in Nottingham has spent much of his career within the fashion and design industry. Nick uses pixellated images and air brush techniques to re-create icons from the movie screen and pop culture.
Nick in 1997 set up his own fashion label, ‘Purple Om’. His cult designer T-shirt brand was revolutionary and items were sold throughout the world in top name independent and department stores such as Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Liberty’s, Collette and Barney’s. Nick cites himself as one of the first designer t-shirt label brands building upon the 90’s obsession with psychedelic images and youth culture.
Holdsworth ventured into the fine art world with instant success by creating works unveiling images with two different perspectives, he creates a distinct style fusing iconography and portraiture whilst flirting with the idea of pop art.
Large in scale, he mounts thousands of pixelated images of a subject on top of each other to form a template. Then using free hand spraypaints Holdsworth applies colour to create the hair and skin tone, and stencils for the lips and eye shadow. This final duplicatation of the image covers the orginal template resulting in a stunning finish, which when completed creates an unmistakeable, but original likeness to the chosen icon.
