Nick Breedon

Nick Breedon is an artist, and co-creator of the arts podcast Pro Prac. Nick’s sculptural practice weaves references from lived experience, pop culture, and art history through meta narratives about desire and alienation, incorporating vulnerable personal stories and dark humour. Nick incorporates a vast array of material processes and making techniques from craft, the western canon of sculpture; painting, textiles and video to make ritual-like objects, with extreme attention to detail.

Nick’s recently exhibited Public Art, a solo exhibition at Firstdraft. Other projects include holographic rainbow installation Monotone Rainbow; solo exhibitions Bongs and Commodores, Alaska Projects (Sydney); A Lot of Luck Bus Projects (Melbourne); Feelings West Space (Melbourne) and Firstdraft (Sydney); Sierpinski Mountain, TCB (Melbourne); and pyrotechnic text installation Let’s Get Metaphysical, commissioned for the 2012 Splendour in the Grass festival.

Nick’s work has been shortlisted for a number of prizes and awards including the 64th Blake Prize, the 2015 Darebin Art Prize and the 2015 Wangaratta Contemporary Textiles Prize, and features in the collections of Artbank and City of Melbourne.
