Nicky Hoberman, nata a Città del Capo, in Sudafrica, nel 1967, ben presto si trasferisce in Inghilterra, studia Storia Moderna all’Università di Oxford e si specializza alla Chelsea School of Art. Lo stile di Nicky Hoberman è un misto di fotorealismo e caricatura, figure illogiche poste su sfondi piatti e interpretabili solo attraverso i loro vestiti, le espressioni e le pose. Riconosciuta per la sua indagine sul concetto di isolamento, identità e individualismo attraverso l’arte, venne selezionata nel 1996 per la mostra New Contemporaries presso la Tate Liverpool e inclusa nella mostra New Neurotic Realists presso la Galleria Saatchi. Vive e lavora a Londra. Ha partecipato ad alcune collettive presso il MoCa di Chicago e Sydney, la Melbourne National Gallery of Victoria e la galleria Magasin 3, Stoccolma.
Nicky Hoberman was born in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1967. She moved to England very soon, where she studied Modern History at the University of Oxford and specialized at the Chelsea School of Art. Nicky Hoberman’s style is a mixture of photorealism and caricature, illogical figures against even and flat backgrounds, interpreted only through their clothes, expressions, and poses. She is famous for the effective investigation through her art of the concepts of isolation, identity, and individuality. She lives and works in London. She was selected for the 1996 New Contemporaries at Tate Liverpool and included in Saatchi’s New Neurotic Realists. She exhibited in group shows at the Chicago MoCA, Sydney MoCA, Melbourne National Gallery of Victoria and Magasin 3, Stockholm.
