Nathan Betts is a Melbourne-based emerging artist, born and raised in New Zealand. His inquisitive portraits find their genesis – birthed from a deeply rooted curiosity of the interplay between colour, form, line and space. Fascinated by the graphic works and ideologies of the Pop Art movement and the intensity of imagery and colour from artists like Francis Bacon, Nathan developed his own stylistic language. Embracing playful abstraction through vivid application of paint and oil pastel, Nathan’s work calls forward and elevates the mundane. Glimpses of the everyday are captured to determine what mode the ordinary takes when documented.
