Nicholas O'Leary

city
Bergen (Norway)
birth
1986

Nicholas O'Leary was born, raised and trained in Architecture in New Zealand. After graduating in 2009 he relocated to Bergen, Norway. Here his lifelong passion of painting was refuelled by the breathtaking scenery surrounding the small city. He has been living and painting in these local mountains ever since. O'Leary works mainly with oil painting and his focus is to explore feelings and moods. By bending physical rules in his paintings O'Leary often challenges our perceptions of truth and deception, reality and fantasy.
