Nick Bertelsen

Nick Bertelsen is a local abstract artist from London.  His abstract work can be identified by his bold use of acrylic colour, knife and trowel techniques and sheer volume of paint.  He typically uses very large canvases as well as multiple canvas pieces.
Nick is a local musician who has played in bands around the city for many years, including local metal heavy hitters, Baptized in Blood and up and coming country/rock band Them Dang Rattlers. He has toured around North America and Europe playing music and has garnered success with both his musical projects.
Nick is relatively new to the painting world however his work is gaining the respect from many local artists due to its vibrant use of colour and technique. He finds just as much enjoyment and significance in going through the physical motions of completing a painting as the completed work itself.
