In artist Nat's words:
"My paintings are reflections of what I see in my head when thinking about the subjects that I paint.
"Allowing the movements of my hands be led naturally by each passing thought, I choose themes that will be familiar to those viewing the paintings.
"Far-reaching yet invisibly and inextricably entwined, all my thoughts are rooted in gratitude.
"They are closely connected yet each is forging its own path, searching for new footholds. They give me hope!
"For this collection, I have selected a broader, brighter palette with bolder strokes and marks to convey the depth of the meaning behind each painting.
"Each work features a cut sawn through the breadth of the layers of paint to represent the conflicts we face internally or externally, inherited or adopted.
"The cuts are a common theme in my work and play a big role in the overall composition and intrigue of each piece."
As well as painting, music is also an essential element of Nat's artistic life.
He is signed to independent music label DeepMatter and stands among a talented roster of soul singers, beat-makers and jazz instrumentalists.
His music is influenced by the likes of Chet Baker, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Blake Mills and sits somewhere between jazz, soul, rnb and hiphop.
Drawing inspiration from real-life events and human interactions, Nat tries to keep his song writing simple but full of emotion and stories.
