Nicholas Bott

B. 1941.  The Netherlands.

Nicholas Bott studied art at the University of British Columbia and holds a diploma from the Chicago School of Art.  Inspired by the loose style of Vincent Van Gogh and the Canadian Group of Seven, and blending his traditional European values with contemporary developments of the new world, his paintings have evolved continuously into the post-impressionistic style of his current work.  Bott distills the landscape elements of the Westcoast and Rocky Mountains into powerful aesthetic compositions to communicate a sense of the sublime.  His work is held in collections across North America.
