Nick Sweetman is an independent, multidisciplinary artist from Toronto. He holds an MFA from OCAD University’s Interdisciplinary Art, Media and Design program as well as a certificate from the Mural Routes Leadership Training in Mural-Making program. He has gone on to lead and contribute to numerous mural projects around the city from East to West, collaborating with many of Toronto’s best artists in the public realm, as well as partnering with several non-profit organizations on community projects and events. His studio practice has always been based in painting, but over the years his work has explored photography, video, installation, and a wide array of mixed media. He is interested in drawing attention to physical and conceptual sites of fracture and intersection between natural forces and human-designed objects and spaces. By this he hopes to encourage consideration of our relationship with the planet and its non-human inhabitants.
