The paintings of Nick Lepard


Nick Lepard is a new Vancouver artist just beginning his professional career.

Lepard’s style is raw, competent and confident beyond his years. Like the work of artists he admires – for example, the American writer Charles Bukowski, a “hard-boiled anti-hero”, and British painter Jenny Saville, who “constructs painting with the weighty heft of sculpture” – Lepard paints with gusto and verve. He has moved beyond his earlier photorealist style to a more courageous approach that is part “happenstance” and very much about the process of moving paint around, while still maintaining artistic control.

Lepard’s parents immigrated to Canada from England. Both a Canadian and a UK citizen, he was born in Vancouver in 1983. Lepard graduated with a B.F.A. from the Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design in 2008.
