Nicholas Blackam is a contemporary American artist.
His works consist of random imagery, colors, shapes, symbols and phrases that are composed in a frenetic manner. This is to achieve what Nicholas calls "an emotion rather then a message." His painting is a form of abstract expressionism- action painting. More like freestyle jazz then a planed composition.
Nicholas has been creating art work since he was a young child and is self-taught. He was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV before moving west to pursue his painting career.
Nicholas now lives and works in Long Beach, California with his wife and 3 boys.
