Nicki Hart represents our very first abstract digital artist on ArtBloom! You can view comparisons of her colorful work from the past five years below. Thanks Nicki!
Nicki Hart is all things artist. She is a CEO and full-time graphic/web designer at Multi-Designs, LLC as well as a digital artist and musician. Music works hand-in-hand with her art creation. Abstracts, digital paintings and photography are a sweet release from the corporate imagery she works to create on a daily basis. Abstract art has been around for so long, yet it is a new realm when it comes to digital. The use of colors and endless shapes make this form of digital art both breathtaking and unique. Nicki’s digital abstracts are free flowing with intense light that begin with a single abstract photograph. Colors and strokes emerge from a black canvas and develop into shapes of all sorts. She was featured on the cover of Advanced Photoshop Magazine in 2008. Find more of Nicki’s artwork and projects at http://nickihart.com.
The wonderful thing about art creation is that it should be first and foremost fun! While it takes a lot of practice, goof-ups and growth, art is one of the few areas where mistakes turn into miracles. Beautiful miracles at that. My artwork has always been about abstraction and intense colors emerging from a black canvas in Photoshop. My abstracts are a virtual playground of light and color with no limits and no rules. This is my break from the corporate imagery I work to create on a daily basis. Over the years I merged my two passions of digital abstracts and photography. I began to shoot light in nature and take it back to the computer to manipulate into a final abstract.
If you are in the early stages of your craft, practice as often as you can and learn from those who preceeded you. Study from those who can inspire you the most. I never stop researching and evaluating other artists. Why not? We are all in this together and we can learn from eachother. As you study, note what draws you to that artist and his/her work. What can you learn and adapt into your own artwork? Then go out and develop your own style and message that makes you stand out. Also, don’t forget to experiment and make mistakes. Many of my final pieces developed through accidents that I never intended. Finally, remember that once you are an artist of one area, you are an artist of many. So often artists delve into one area and forget that their creative minds can pursue and master other areas. That’s a great reward for artists.You may always have that number one medium, but you can also enjoy and succeed in other areas such as music. Without my music self, my digital abstract self would not exist.
