Nick Mauss

Drawing is a central theme and plays a dominant role in Nick Mauss’ work. Using a multi-disciplinary practice, the artist explores the potential of drawing and reinvents its possible forms by combining it with other media such as painting, sculpture, video, performance, books, and poetry.
