Within Nicolai Sclater’s artwork* there exists a multitude of creative impulses which are in turn expressed through a variety of skills. As a cursive and printscript artist, Nico’s steady-handed brushstrokes are nothing less than first class, honed through thousands of hours putting paint to canvas, helmet, leather jacket, motorcycle, race car, what have you. As a graphic artist, his playful use of color creates eye-popping, stare-worthy imagery. And as a writer, his use of language exhibits a sharp wit, a lyrical rhythm, and undeniably hilarious tone. The pieces he’s created for us at The Emporium encompass all that make Ornamental Conifer one of the most inspiring artists we know. He makes his own fun wherever he goes. We can’t wait for him to come back. *DISCLAIMER: Never Perfect But Aways Awesome
