What does a zebra say? What would be a cool clothing line? Why a crocodile and not a zebra? Why is everything black and white? Is it? Is what and where and how we are going and doing so insane that we can't read between the lines? Why? Why? Why? Oh maybe it's just art. Be original. Nicholas Conlon
Please look at each piece separate. Each piece has its own identity. It's own characteristics. Every stroke is different. Almost every idea is a big change from the one before and the one ahead of it. I am a conceptual artist. Sometimes it's a film and sometimes it's a drawing of a pigeon on a dirty, broken, backboard. Whatever I am feeling at the time I have to go run and paint or write. I think of an image and get it down on paper or canvas 70-95% of what was in my head. I am interested in art. I love it.

Poet. Artist. Designer. Filmmaker. Political Graffitist. Father. Lover. Fighter. Nicholas D Conlon was born as Nicholas Daniel Farelli in 1975. Without elaborating on that too much, He was born in the infirmary of a penitentiary in Fairfax, West Virginia. 10 years later he was adopted by his step-father Patrick Joseph Conlon. Before this addition to his life, Nicholas was raised by a single mother, a grandma and grandpa and his older sister of exactly 8 years. Nicholas grew up on the streets of Chicago in the 80's attending many different Catholic and public schools finally finishing his education with a degree in Theater from Southern Illinois University Carbondale His painting is influenced by his experiences growing up in the inner city. The people, the neighborhoods, television, movies, sports, gangs, drugs and alcohol, all of this first hand influenced the way Nicholas paints and writes and does any and all forms of art. He has been painting and writing and been involved in film and theatre production for over 30 years. Nicholas' work is beautiful from afar but up close it’s dirty, torn, ripped, non-conforming and it’s all over the board. It's meant to be touched, Felt and talked about. It's not one theme, not one style, not one medium. Nicholas' art is found in private collections all over the world and also the streets of LA and Chicago and all over the internet. He's been part of group exhibitions and solo shows in Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles. After 6 years of theater, films, painting, writing on the back of paper napkins and slinging cocktails in Los Angeles, Nicholas moved back to Chicago where he continues to work in all mediums of art.
