Nico Pearleyes is an artist, freelance illustrator and graphic designer from France. He is self-taught in art but has studied graphic design in Gobelins, Paris. The call to make art came naturally during the 2020 lockdown, after several years trying out different career paths. Shortly after, his work was exhibited in Europe and the US, in galleries such as Equity or Nucleus galleries.
Currently based in Paris, he has lived several times in South Korea. Besides creative activities, he is interested with languages and foreign cultures. He is especially interested in the way they shape our minds to make us experience reality differently. This interest led him to live and work several times in South Korea and teach himself several languages, which in turn had an impact on his art practice.
