Featured Artist: Nightways

A kind and creative soul brought up in an alternative home, February’s featured artist has always looked to innovate rather then follow the mainstream.

Nightways was formed in 2012 as an artistic persona, which has an on-going production based on bears and people as its protagonists. Under this persona, Night has performed at a number of events doing live graffiti painting and has sold his artwork with the dream of self development and one love under his hat

The Bear primarily represents strength and confidence, standing against adversity, taking action and leadership. The Bear emphasises the importance of solitude, quiet time and rest. The spirit of the bear provides strong grounding force.

The human side allows us to bring emotions and body language into the pictures, enabling us to relate to and be inspired by these beautiful creatures.

Night’s pieces often depict characters found in meditation or astral travelling in space, in tune with universal energy, experiencing the unseen that connects us all. Fractals, yoga, positivity, higher and lower states of consciousness, urban aesthetics, hip-hop, equality & graffiti culture are other themes of his work.

Nightways had an illegal graffiti background in his early years before forming this new artist persona. He was in a team of anti social kids who got kicks out of painting their names in the city.

This graffiti upbringing is responsible for the artist he is today. Through this youthful creativeness and reformed outlook on life he has progressed his graffiti on paper to walls with an eagle eye for detail and dream like lucid patterns.
