Nihil is a french artist living in Norway. He created ‘Ventre’, a dark and mystic fictional world used as a context for texts, images, performances.
Inspired by ancient sacred texts, psychedelic trips and life experiences in hospitals and medical research centers, his work reflects on transcendance, identity and individuality. His images are portraits of saints and martyrs who lost their humanity to drown in divine serenity. They use the codes of religious art to illustrate the sanctification processus through and beyond suffering and sickness.
His work has been shown in two personal exhibitions in Paris and Berlin and he participated in numerous collective shows in USA and Europe along with artists like David Lynch, Marilyn Manson, Ernst Fuchs, H.R. Giger, Alejandro Jodorowsky etc. His artworks have been published in several artbooks and magazines and have been used as a reference by french street artist C215 and numerous tattoo artists around the world. He worked with influential musicians and bands like Amenra, In Slaughter Natives and Navicon Torture Technologies. He was invited to demonstrate his techniques in workshops and lectures in France, Norway & Turkey.
