'An invaluable resource for exploring Party's prolific career to date, revealing the scope and depth of his mastery and whimsy' - Forbes
The first monograph on one of the most successful, collected, and exciting painters today, Nicolas Party
Swiss-born Nicolas Party, one of the most successful and critically acclaimed artists working today, is known for his colour-saturated paintings of everyday objects, with distinctly personal yet very accessible and recognizable imagery - bright, graphic patterns applied to canvases, ceramics, furniture, floors, ceilings, doorways, and walls. He captures the essence of his subjects in surprising ways, heightening their physical and emotional resonance. Fascinated by the power of paint to alter our perception of the built environment and, within a gallery context, how we experience art, Party regularly paints murals, either as stand-alone works or as carefully orchestrated settings for his practice.
This is the first book dedicated to his practice and the first to examine in totality his career to date - it will be a must-read for collectors and followers of the contemporary art scene.
