My name is Nick Cocozza, a visual artist from Scotland currently based in Berlin, Germany.
I do not restrict myself to any specific artistic medium, instead I drift between different disciplines encompassing print making, 3d and sculptural work and painting into my works.

My work incorporates a mixture of computer based, installation and hand drawn elements and often focus on the notion of urban culture. My art is inspired by my own surroundings, drawing inspiration from people, conversations, textures and memories. Based on everyday experiences, people and humour, I give you my own view of popular culture with a hint of criticism.

Since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone college of art in 2010, my work has been published and exhibited internationally. In 2010 I won an award from DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst) for my modern day interpretation of the fairytale ‘Hänsel and Grätel’ which initially brought me to Berlin and kickstarted my creative career as a visual artist. Some of my most prominent clients are several music festivals in the UK , musicians such as the world renowned grime collective Boy Better Know (Skepta, Wiley, JME & Drake) and magazines such as the Austrian-based Indie Magazine and Popshot poetry magazine.
