Nigel Cooke [Biography]

Nigel Cooke

Nigel Cooke was born in Mirfield, West Yorkshire and has art running through his veins. Nigel joined the Merchant Navy after leaving school and subsequently has held a number of jobs on the road to becoming a full-time artist.

These included joining Butlins as their resident caricaturist and entertainer. He later went on to open caricature concessions on Blackpool’s Central Pier and Pleasure Beach, in the Trafford Centre Mall in Manchester, and at Alton Towers. He has also worked as a character designer for the Hong Kong based C.I.M International and remains a member of the National Caricature Network in the USA.

Having spent many years travelling the world as a charicature artist, Nigel then started to look to translate his unique point of view into other subjects. Looking back to all the places he visited and worked, Nigel begun painting cityscapes, which elevated his illustrative style into fine art. His unusual, dynamic and unmistakeable style creates beautifully textured scenes that have intricate, layered details.

To date, Nigel has sold paintings all over the world, with particularly strong sales in the UK, the USA and the Far East. Spending years perfecting his drippy style, Nigel has now become one of the UK’s most popular artists.
