About Nicholas Coleman

Nicholas Coleman was born in Provo, Utah in 1978. Brought up in an artistic home, Coleman has been painting and drawing for as long as he can remember. Coleman has found much of his inspiration in his travels across North America, Canada, Europe and even into Africa. Hunting and fishing along the way his interest often include exploring hidden streams and valleys looking for signs of wildlife. In his own words he wants to "preserve the heritage of the American West.” Which includes the Wildlife that still roam free in the open spaces between civilization! Coleman uses a traditional academic approach in his painting, never formally trained he looks to the masters of old to inspire and guide his own career. His work definitely has a feel of realism as he strives to make each painting better than the next. There is a certain amount of spontaneity and a slight impressionistic feel to his paintings, that let the viewer participate in the work. Coleman endeavors to create a connection between his paintings and the observer by invoking a mood that the viewer can walk into. "The West has always fascinated me. So many untold stories to tell!”

What People Are Saying

Although I am not a big fan of Western art, I thoroughly enjoyed the museum. The sculpture was stunning, and the views from the museum were beautiful. I learned so much about American artists, and the history of the difficulty in having wildlife paintings accepted by artists' organizations was fascinating. A lovely visit.
