Nigel Artingstall

Nigel was born in Cheshire in 1963, but soon after moved with his parents, three brothers and sister to Harwood in Bolton where he now lives with his wife and two young daughters.

From a very young age Nigel showed an interest in wildlife, particularly birds, and spent many hours studying the fauna and flora. He demonstrated an early ability as an artist with his pencil drawings and slate etchings. By the age of eleven he started selling his work to friends, relatives and teachers.

Nigel spent a number of years working for a small company as a modeller of birds, unfortunately due to business pressures the company had to close but this gave Nigel the impetus to develop his painting.

The backgrounds for his work are almost entirely painted with an airbrush to give the photo realistic effect indicative of his work. The subject of the painting and foreground are then painted with a fine sable brush which creates an almost 3D image.

During the past few years Nigel has exhibited his work in selected galleries throughout the UK, and has sold his work at the Royal Academy of Art in London. His highly detailed paintings are now in collections both here and abroad.
