Exhibition Comments:

CONTEMPORARY PAINTINGS -  SOHO GALLERIES

A fascination with the human condition and a childhood passion for painting and sculpture have crystallised in him resulting in a desire to paint pictures that are honest expressions of his inner feelings and personal experiences from the heart.

His varied background has no doubt contributed to this fascination for the vibrancy of life that he so confidently depicts in his paintings and sculptures.  He was born in Mali and moved to Brighton in England at a young age and from there to Bangkok, Thailand, where he spent the next six years of his life absorbing the colours, smells and tastes of the Orient.

His most formative years were spent in Brazil where, in addition to learning Portuguese, 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 Broughtons inimitable tattooed contour lines, clarity of idea and image, and distinctive sense of colour attest to his daring individual stance in making powerful impassioned statements.
