Nicholas Broughton is a robust, dedicated artist and is a self-confessed ‘addict to the canvas’. He is obsessive about his particular discipline and considers a day without painting to be incomplete. His formative years were spent in Brazil and he learned to adapt to a fascinating and variegated scene where different cultural backgrounds and traditions blend together. The Brazilian artist Di Cavalcanti was an early influence but after he started painting seriously, the influence of Picasso, Modigliani and Chagall has dominated his canvasses and sculptures.
Nicholas’s clarity of idea and image, and distinctive sense of color attest to his daring individual stance in making powerful impassioned statements.
