Nick Angelo (b. 1990, Los Angeles, California) is a Los Angeles-based artist. He holds a BA in Urban Studies from The Eugene Lang College for Liberal Arts at the New School in New York City, and an MFA in Photography and Media from the California Institute of the Arts.
Angelo’s work uses mapping, topography, and diagramming as methods of a criticality towards American cultural and political power structures, constantly hinting at an “end times” enigma which seems omnipresent in a contemporary environment plagued by disinformation and dissent. His work often adulterates, confuses, and meshes subjective and alternative histories with mainstream cultural discourses as a means of drawing questions surrounding mental health, addiction, truth and lies, power relations, and institutional critique. The finished works primarily arrive as paintings, sculptures, and installations.
