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