Nigel Cooke is known for painting.

Biography   Nigel Cooke


Nigel Cooke is known for his realist paintings tinged with abstraction. His work often depicts scenes of urban decay that symbolizes the degeneration of the cultural landscape.  Much of his artwork makes direct reference to art history. 

His artistic influences were Van Gogh, Philip Guston and Francis Bacon. Bacon was one of  Cooke's formative influences. The rawness of Bacon's paintings appealed to Cooke who described Bacon's work as "…magical, this real presence of the uniqueness of the vision. I was spellbound by the idea of living with something that you make, that's like a character, but a thing in the world that's got its own life." (quoted in 'Interview Magazine', 21st September 2015).
